    Top Four Says Tony

    The full interview is on Buddie Vision. I don't care if anyone thinks we will be ridiculed, I love having a passionate guy like Tony talking the club up.

    Top Four Says Tony

    I love the fact that we have people within the club who set our targets and ambitions high. Whether people think it's 'pie in the sky' or not, there is no point in competing at this level if you don't have ambition to strive to be the best you can. Top 4 may sound ambitious, though this is where the club were at when Tony was playing. People are saying that the crowds and atmosphere in stands are as good as they were back 30+ years ago. Why can't we have a team at least competing top 6? Killie never had a star studded side, though they finished 3rd and their crowds are at their highest in many of years. I believe there are many exciting things going to happen around the club over the next 6-7 years and once we get to where we want to be with that, this should hopefully strengthen us on the park and get us back competing at the right end of the table.

    Ffs he's only trying to talk the club up. There's nothing wrong with that. If we aren't setting our sights high then there's no point turning up. How many season tickets do you think we would sell if our CEO came out and said our aim is to finish 10th for the next 5 years. The man's a saints legend and should be treated as such.

    It is what it is with Tony. He’ll always be our biggest cheerleader. biggest surprise is that he went through an interview without mentioning Sir Alex, how Jack Ross reminded him of Sir Alex and how Oran reminds him of Jack.

    This is probably what has been circulated internally. Tony ideally wants us pushing for the treble.

    And there we have it.. it’s the close season. [emoji849][emoji849]Tony is a great guy and I love his positivity. Are his targets realistic at the moment? Probably not... am I embarrassed by his comments? Of course not. We all have different ways of looking at life out there and I prefer Tony’s version.

    I agree but when you take into consideration we had to beat Aberdeen away, Celtic and Collum at Hampden and the Hearts in the final then the unlikely can be achieved. Clarke took over Killie who were absolutely doomed under McCulloch and got them to third, St Johnstone are regular visitors to the top six. No-one is saying we should permanently be in the top four or six but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive for it

    He almost single handedly kept them in the game against us last time. His marshalling of their defence was inspired. Don't like him playing against us... but would certainly support him if Oran signed him.

    And you're another sad man who doesn't attend games yet mouths off constantly on an internet forum about matters you really don't have a clue about - you 'support' the club via social media, the papers and hearsay. Do you know we don't play at Love Street anymore?

    Mate, having dreams is fine, getting it printed in a national newspaper is another This clown said we would win the Premiership in 2019 when we were in Championship. Sure he is a Legend but he is also our CEO, and with that surely comes responsibilty .................. Say that we want to push on, stabilize and ensure survival, we strggled for 9 years 2006-2015 in top league with far less squad rotation, far less managerail turmoil. These are all facts, and thats far more recent than the 80s. By his logic - Dundee Utd should win the Champions League within the next 2-3 years The thing about football supporters is they don't think logically, football is about emotion, it's about dreams and whilst a cub needs stability and boring people it also needs dreamers with ambition.

    If you don't strive to be the best you possibly can at your passion then you're not really that passionate about it. Absolutely nothing wrong with a bit of ambition - makes a change from the West Coast negativity where only the OF matter. Let's talk up our great club a little, who else is going to do it? People don't like TF saying these things because 'we'll get ridiculed' - what age are you? Sticks 'n' stones and all that

    Thommo would probably have said the same about scoring in a winning cup final for his heroes after beating Celtic in a semi and scoring in that one too......it can happen if only seldom

    Totally agree. Perhaps if he spent more time improving how the club functions eg ticketing system he might fulfil the role of a proper CEO. Being a CEO requires a lot of skills very few of which he appears to have. Frankly I'm fed up with him. I know he loves the club. So do I but I would be a crap CEO.

    Absoulte nonsense. Nothing wrong with ambition. Lots wrong with saying its where we SHOULD be though when it's clearly untrue. In a cheif exec role, coming away with this is potentially harmful to recruitment. Can imagine targets like: Top 4 club you say? You'll be offering out wages to match likes of Hearts or Hibs then.

    Same here. Tony was at the Club in a golden era for us when top 4 was definitely doable. Why shouldn't he believe we can do it again? Love Tony's passion and if it freaks out the likes of Stubbs and Neilson then long may it continue.

    Our budget is not fixed in time - if we move up a few places in the table next season, we get a bigger share of the pot, following year up another place or two and so on. We cannot truly compete on budget with the top 6 right now, and it will take some amazing improvements, but who knows - if we make the kind of steps forward like we have since January, it must be a possibility, albeit not a huge one... I think Oran and Gus waved a magic wand in January - I look forward to seeing them have another go - this time they have had more time to hunt...

    My first theory - I think the Sun being the Sun have mis-quoted Tony - He means 4th from bottom next season... Or Tony was looking well into the future. To get from 11th to 6th will take more than a season and after that it could be a lot more difficult. However, As the budget grows, as we sell one of Gus's new finds every year for over a million, maybe's we can someday finish 4th in this league.. - But I guess Hibs, Hearts, Killie and Aberdeen will not all be at their best...

    Cause he misread the email and it was actually £35,000. Cause he gibbers a lot of nonsense at times? Cause, if the transfer doesn’t come off, he can use that as the reason and fans won’t complain. Cause he wants to break our transfer record...one he created by signing Stickroth.
