However I imagine he and/or the court agreed his actual interest in the club had to be included as part of its sale.Most likely. It would have saved people a lot of worrying had someone announced this at an earlier date.

Excuse me if Im not dancing a jig but it seems weve gone from one sole owner to another sole owner whos background is in, "Asset Stripping."
I can't find too much background on him, can anyone else?
Whether Pilley bid or not, the same rumours are going to be heard around FTFC. If he did put in a bid, the only way he will want to deal with backlash from the fans is if he has the winning bid. Until then, the rumours spread among the ITK people are going to be that Pilley most definitely did not place a bid for Blackpool.
Solihull replaced him with a guy who scored more goals last season. Let the negativity seep in....
I would side with Pilley or Jenkins. It would be good to have people in charge who actually understand football. The other groups could be successful, but their lack of experience in the game could lead them to hiring the wrong people.
He should stay until there are new owners in place. The club needs the stability that McPhillips provided this year. The football may be crap, but without investment I do not see how anyone can expect it to be great at this point. I also do not want to see the current board put a guy in place just to have him removed by the new owners.
My only hope is that when the new owners come in they at least give McPhillips the opportunity to show them what his plan would be with investment. If the owners think he isn't the man for the job then away he goes.
Who's to say he hasn't already got it? He didn't spend much of the multi-million PL legacy on the club. That was obviously steered well away from the club, it must be somewhere.
I wouldn't put anything past the sly old cunt.
I don't think that money is in his hands anymore. I think it was squandered in poor investments. If he could drum up 25 million, I do not know how he couldn't drum up 30 million to pay off Belokon. Of course, trying to get into the mind of Oyston is not something I want to do.
I have no faith that the EFL will ban him based on the fit and proper test since they have not done so already.
I have tons of faith that no one will just turn around and hand this man 25 million dollars. It doesn't take much of a background check to see he will be in no position to repay.
