Why the FA banned George Graham

The Football Association yesterday published detailed findings of this summer's disciplinary commission which found the former Arsenal manager, George Graham, guilty of misconduct and suspended him from all football activity until 30 June 1996. The following are edited extracts from the commission's `Statement of Reasons'.

Harris and Hornby: the new literary dynasty

"Ever since I have been old enough to understand what it means to be suburban I have wanted to come from somewhere else. I have already dropped as many aitches as I can. My sister, on the other hand, who also has problems with her suburban roots, suddenly started to speak like the Duchess of Devonshire; when we introduced each other to our respective sets of friends, they found the experience perplexing in the extreme. Had she fallen on hard times or had I struck it lucky?" - Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch.

Pop / FLEADH Finsbury Park, London

The post of Lunatic Genius brings with it many duties - snubbing national anthems, desecrating pictures of religious leaders. So no wonder Sinead O'Connor's appearance at the Fleadh on Saturday evening was so rare; she must have her Filofax packed with stunts to make Salman Rushdie look like Nanette Newman.

Baroque 'n' roll, man

Alan Clayson, the musician, author and pop historian, and one of the more extraordinary figures to emerge from rock 'n' roll, gives a rare solo recital at the George Robey in Finsbury Park on Easter Sunday. It is difficult to explain to the uninitiated quite what to expect: there'll be Clayson on vocals, guitars and keyboards, plus a selection of tapes, gadgets and audio-visual effects - and plenty of dialogue with the audience. Clayson himself calls it baroque 'n' roll, a collision between the avant- garde and the most hackneyed clichs of cabaret. Despite being a multi- instrumentalist, whose musical career stretches back beyond the formation of Clayson and the Argonauts in the mid-1970s, Clayson boasts a certain "instrumental vulnerability - some people get a vicarious thrill from me messing up solos, riffs et al..." Perhaps this is why latterly he has concentrated on his writing career, producing nine books on the music and musicians of the Sixties which have earned him the title "the AJP Taylor of the pop world". There is even an Alan Clayson Fan Club, which dates from his appearance at a Beatles convention in Chicago three years ago: booked to give a lecture, Clayson left his notes in his hotel room, and found himself delivering an "impromptu stream of consciousness on my life, my soul, my aspirations", backed by an electric piano. It went down a storm.

True Stories: Me and the dipper: At last, the pickpocket experience

We were sitting at the bar of a busy, reputable Soho drinking establishment. My girlfriend's handbag was lying on the floor, at the foot of her stool, well in view of both of us, when finally it happened. After four years of living in London, albeit indirectly, I had fallen prey to the pickpockets.

Chris Maume on pop

A friend of mine had always thought EM Forster was dead until the great man knocked on his door in college and asked him to turn his record player down. Similarly, news that Jethro Tull are playing a benefit gig for Friends of the Earth at The Grand in Clapham next Thursday may induce one or two double-takes. The truth is that they've never really been away since the late Sixties, without ever reproducing the epic qualities of albums like Aqualung and Thick as a Brick. The Pan-like presence of Ian Anderson (right) has been the only constant in a band that's had more more starting line-ups than Graham Taylor's England, but at The Grand he will be joined by such former colleagues as Mick Abrahams and Martin Barre.
