Chelsea midfielder Ramires has accepted a charge of violent conduct following an off-the-ball incident that was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.

The incident occurred during Chelsea’s Premier League fixture against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 19 April.

Ramires receives a four match ban which will start with immediate effect.

The ban includes three games for this offence plus an additional game for his sending off at Villa Park last month.

‘President Obama briefly played soccer with a robot during his visit to Japan on Thursday. The President has been emphasizing technology along with security concerns during his visit.’

Bumpy Pitch In GQ Magazine – May 2014

Filed under: Bumpy Pitch, Culture & Lifestyle

When we first started Bumpy Pitch, Dunny and I would talk about one day getting in @GQ Magazine…. What that would mean to us personally and what it would mean for the sport to have a true soccer inspired clothing company in the pre-eminent men’s fashion magazine.

Well, that just happened in the new May issue on Page 76 and it is more than just a little meaningful for us. Much respect and many thanks to all those that have supported and held us down even when people questioned the idea of a clothing company inspired by the lifestyle of soccer.
