    This one is on Fox, so I figure a few of you all might we watching and it deserves a thread of its own, if only to complain about Defoe. Abe and Defoe up top, Huddlestone and Carrol in the middle. Lennon/Bale wings, Lloris in nets.

    Demps looked cranky warming up. Kicking off.

    Maribor very quick to collapse on the wings in the early going. two corners for Spurs. Maribor looks nervous. A few silly giveaways.

    7:53 and Defoe does a great defoe in the box. Everyone looks at him like - "we knew you'd do that" Goes wide/semi-wiffs.

    Maribor without options going forward - they run it down the wings and run out of road.

    They showed a replay on a beautiful bit of skill by Bale (he really is good btw) where he pulls it down, spins, drives to the keeper at the near post and cuts it across. If Demps had been in he'd have been a good bet to meet it far post at the 10, but only Adebayor made the run.

    Lloris touches the ball. He won't much today.

    Defoe scores

    Defender marking Defoe slips. Bale drives in cross. Defoe off his thigh? One timer anyway.

    first decent attack by Maribor doesn't get to the 18.

    1st corner for Mari results in 2nd corner for Maribor

    They are clearly hoping for setpiece goals - falling a lot around the 25 - 30 (alot relative to the 4 times they've gotten the ball there.)

    Bale looks like Renaldo out there on the left.

    Naughton could not have done worse if he dribbled in himself.

    That said, Lloris too slow to react. Cluster-funk of epic proportions. that was the only way Maribor were gonna score.

    against all odds Spurs may find a way to screw this up.
