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. 

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.

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

I am sure the ugly sisters are pishing their boots over the Buddies impending challenge ....................

We survived by the skin of our teeth, we have a complete rebuilding job in the summer and like Livi, Accies and County our aim is survival . These are facts and its got nothing to do with being ridiculed- after all- why the hell do you think the Sun printed it - because its genuine ?

I suspect Tony could be a bit more measured in his comments, e.g. He could say that we are aiming to be top 4, but in the short term we are making progress towards this goal. That work continues next season where we intend to be above and outside the relegation battle by the time the play-offs come along...

This way he speaks of our clubs ambition without doing so unrealistically in the short term . .

This nonsense always gets trotted out........better than being negative....... who's being negative? 

You're another doesn't know the difference between reality and ambition. 

It's not just Tony people are laughing at, it's our club. If that's ok with you, crack on.

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.

What a stupid post , are you 5?

Do you think Ross County will sell more STs by claiming they are going for the title 

What does being a Legend have to do with it ?

Saints are 4500-1 to win the League next season, away down the bookies- its a cert..............

I shot a best ever 64 last year at Barshaw.  then got a 44 at the 2nd hole a 62 at the 3rd,  chucked it at the 4th, as I ran out of golf balls  golf fall GIF

I looked through all my golf balls and could not find a hole in any one of them - I keep getting told it is great to have a hole in one. . .

Actually - Yes because I like to take my team seriously I do care....................... as I left school 38 years ago

I still don't get it.  Why would when you left school determine whether or not you care about someone laughing at the team you support?  Do you get upset about songs opposition fans sing about us?  It's all very strange.

 

My reaction to anyone mentioning what Tony says is along the lines of "Tony's a dreamer.  But one day his dreams may come true."  That applies to just about anything Tony says.

Stop reading The Sun.  It often twists words to get a reaction and It works.

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.

If Killie can do it so can we !believe
