    Think 74 a is T.S.A.C . It's only American series I could see that fits. What's 37 down and 14 down?

    Struggling with a few

    18a - the kind of budget that won’t get you far in the Premier League (10)

    10d - put sage in the background (7)

    12d - putting up a fight creates sin and is sometimes futile (10)

    90d/41a/17a - there is nothing round about this iconic indoor venue 7,6,6)

    43a/93a is she a Brazilian equivalent of 51a (McGregor) (4,6)

    If people put the clues in their posts it would help those who don't have the puzzle to assist you with the answers.
