Here's the game: I start by giving a cryptic clue, the next person then answers by providing a cryptic clue of their own which contains within it the answer to the previous clue. The person after that answers in the same way and so on, creating a continuous chain of clues.

Here's the first clue: The next two days are an anticlimax, we hear? (7)

Wouldn't this lead to an endless series of clues for the same word?

If, so I'll answer yours with:

Whilst a clinical finisher, this still had Pelé knocking out the cock pills on telly. (7)

No, the actual clue itself should contain the solution to the previous clue. The solution to the new clue could be anything at all, though.

Heard in Palestine: spies capture lawyers turning tail. (6)
