The Fire dropped a 2-0 decision to the Premier League's Tottenham Hotspur in a friendly at Toyota Park. The game itself didn't provide much of interest for Fire supporters other than a first glimpse at new acquisition Razdan Cocis and a possible preview of a line up change. Jeff Larentowicz started the game at centerback in a move that Frank Yallop referred to as his "prerogative" to get a look.
Southampton Football Club have warned other Premier League suitors that midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin won't be sold for any less than £27million. The Saints have already netted £78 million this summer in the sales of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren to Liverpool, and Luke Shaw to Manchester United.
When Tottenham secured his signature from AS Roma in aclub record£30 million deal, I considered it to be a very astute piece of business. There was little doubt in my mind that this enthralling young wingerwould take the Premier League by storm and Iwaxed lyrical about his stratospheric potentialto plenty.
DONE DEAL: Tottenham finally sign Liverpool target, plus two more deals confirmed - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Swansea City left-back of last season, Ben Davies, has been confirmed as a new signing at Tottenham Hotspur today, fighting off interest from high-flying Liverpool. The Swans and the Lilywhiteshavebecome very co-operative of late with Michel Vorm also heading from South Wales to North London andGylfi Sigurdsson heading in the opposite direction.
Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City have finalized the transfer deals between each club with Ben Davies and Michel Vorm heading to Spurs, while Gylfi Sigurdsson heads to Swansea.
But in this convenient series of transfer deals, who are the winners and losers? Surprisingly, there are more winners than losers in this deal, which is one of the reasons why the deals between both clubs make so much sense.
Tottenham Hotspur has yet to officially announce the signing of Swansea City left back Ben Davies. However, the Welsh defender has been spotted training with Tottenham Hotspur in Toronto today, ahead of the club's friendly against Toronto FC on Wednesday night.
While Swansea was on its preseason tour of the United States in Illinois, Milwaukee and Minnesota last week, an agreement was reached between both Swansea and Tottenham to send the talented full back to the London club.
This past weekend, Tottenham midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson left the club's pre-season training camp in Seattle and this morning was reportedly having a medical at Swansea City ahead of a proposed£10million ($17 million) move.
Speculation is that the 24-year-old is part of a deal that will see Swansea left-back Ben Davies go the opposite way to North London.
So far, Tottenham Hotspur is the only club in the Premier League that hasn't signed a player this summer. Despite manager Mauricio Pochettino's claim that he doesn't expect any new additions at Tottenham, reports in England suggest that Tottenham are the favorites to sign left-back Ben Davies from Swansea City.
Tottenham Hotspur have officially unveiled their home and away shirts for the 2014/15 season.
Inspired by former player and manager Bill Nicholson, the shirts mark the 10th anniversary of Nicholson's death. To honor him, the home shirt has the words "Echo of Glory" woven into them from one of Nicholson's famous quotes:
'It is better to fail aiming high than to succeed aiming low.

Fittingly taking place in the Belgian town of Boom every summer since 2005, the Tomorrowland festival is pretty much thearmpit of the truly vacuousEuropean dance music scene, with thousands of pisshole-eyed, sweaty-vested, cheek-chewing day-glo ravers swarmingto rural Flanders to mindlesslywomp and woopthe weekendaway.
A clear but cool evening lakeside tonight. This was the first friendly that I was attending since year 1 - Benfica and then Aston Villa. This is not an indication that I am a raving opponent of the summer friendly. I guess I can see both sides to the argument. Most of the time I have avoided the friendlies because of price point or having a scheduling conflict or somebody else wanting the tickets.
Ah, it's a good thing we made that trade today. Sure we weren't gonna get De Marcus Beasley but we did get Warren Creavalle and I hear he should make it in time for this all important friendly. I read that his flight was delayed, so maybe he can make it in the second half. *fingers crossed* This was your typical exhibition fare : kids and bench get a run out and super try for everything, visitors just screw with us effortlessly and not run up the score too much.
Definitely not this fun We have banged on for years here about our dislike for mid-season friendlies. We still think they are money-grabbing, energy-wasting injury magnets but we have always understood your attendance if your childhood club was the opponent. (So mail your letters calling me a hypocrite to "P.
Not quite sure how I coped before the World Cup, but by heavens life has been a struggle in the seven days since it finished. A handy opportunity however, to cast the eye over those lilywhites in action this summer, as well as various other bits and pieces at N17.
First-rate stuff though the tournament was, alas it was not the sort of World Cup to have wide-eyed maidens rushing to the top of their towers and squealing the good name of Tottenham.
Juventus plan £20m bid for Tottenham midfielder - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
According to the Telegraph, Juventus are making a £20million bid to sign Brazilian midfielder Paulinho from Tottenham Hostpur.
The move is expected to open the door for Arturo Vidal to leave the Italian champions albeit Manchester United, who seem the front runners to tie up the Chilean's signature, dismiss the word that they are close to agreeing a deal for the 27 year old.
