Which leaves -

02   A legend from the Hawthorns
03   Account rendered from Cambridge
04   Aces narrowly thwarted twice at Wimbledon
05   Alliterative/Rhyming man was from Lancs, but no longer
06   And extra sweat from down the coast
14   Do this or lose it Tom
15   Driving on a narrow lane you would be grateful for this
16   Ears dealt with while you wait
22   Get hammered in Dulwich
26   Jack trims trees
27   Little Thomas follows the straight and narrow
29   Nail, tack  .
33   Porkers exam is being checked
46   Use him to saving getting lost in criminal territory

A couple of speculative efforts:

05. The pnly alliterative Lancastrian that comes to mind is Gerry Jones.
26. No idea if he was Jack, but J C Pollard?

26 is Pollard

5 should be rhyming rather than alliterative

Then for 5, how about Mike Pike? No more as Barrow in Furness was stolen from Lancashire and given to Cumbria in 1974.

33. Ken Markham?

02 Taylor  (any one of three)   (Baggies legend Bob Taylor)

That sounds very good nemesis - it would be difficult to get your ears pierced in your absence. A nice clue, well solved (I assume.)
