Tottenham needed to avoid defeat at Wisla Krakow this afternoon to advance to the group stage of the UEFA Cup. They did just that with a 1-1 draw that saw them scrape through on aggregate, 3-2.
Tottenham scraped into the group stages of the Uefa Cup with a 1-1 draw in Krakow this afternoon. After their 2-1 victory at White Hart Lane in the first leg, Juande Ramos’s side needed only to avoid defeat in Poland to progress and did so despite several scares in the final minutes.
Qualification for the next round will come as something of a relief for Ramos, whose team sits bottom of the Premier League, without a win in six matches. The Spurs manager had admitted that defeat in this fixture would have been a “disaster” so he would have been mightily relieved to see his side survive a late resurgence from the home side and keep their European hopes alive.

The win eased the current pressure being heaped on Spurs coach, Juande Ramos; but did the win do enough to bring Spurs supporters back across the line? It has been a very tough year at White Hart Lane to this point, but with a win against Wisla, home matches against Stoke and Hull upcoming and an away match to Bolton, one has to wonder if this is the point where Tottenham finally turns the corner.
What do Spurs supporters think? Was the win today enough to take the black cloud away for the day?
