I feel sorry for him in many ways - it's not his fault he was offered the job, but he's not the right man for it.
Exactly right.Lamb to the slaughter from day 1

I said the club board had to have a shake up over the summer as they didn't have the guts straight after the January disaster.Nothing has changed and here we are looking at a relegation battle.

The blame lies fairly and squarely with Spencer and his crew but still they sit unmoved while our club goes down the pipe

His account has been private for ages.

As much as I don't think he's up to the job, I really can't see the issue with him blocking people from his private Twitter account.

The problem with Twitter is that you don't just see the tweets from those who you follow, but ones from people who follow similar accounts. I.e. if he follows the Wrexham twitter then someone comments for him to be sacked on one of their posts then he may well see it.

Most of the people he's blocked are pricks anyway, especially Ulrich.

--Edit--

I see he has also blocked certain fans as well. But if you previously used twitter for fun then people started criticising you while struggling in your new job you would take steps to stop seeing that level of criticism, wouldn't you?
You can mute people, or mute certain words or terms which prevents posts containing them from being seen. He didn't need to directly block anyone to stop seeing anti Hughes posts.

Again, fans who pay their money to pay his wages are perfectly entitled to say what they like. Blocking fans shows he's buckling, but we knew it was only a matter of time.

And he's perfectly entitled to block whoever he wants on his personal social media account, it's got nothing to do with Wrexham football club.

Weird.

People are entitled to post their opinions on here and their social media.

Brian Hughes is equally entitled to block those fans who are saying negative things about him.

Don't see the big deal.

Exactly, anyone who has a problem with it needs to get a grip.

Don't see the issue either

As much as I dislike the bloke and want him out this is nit-picking a bit

He’s blocking comments, so what? No big deal, I think I would too.

He's blocking the 'owners', like you refusing to answer the phone, reply to emails, turn up to meetings to your boss because you don't like their critiques of your work. No way do you go on the defensive or not listen. He isn't just blocking abusive people which he's fine to do, he's going beyond that in textbook John Mills style.

You may or may not have your boss as a friend, follower whatever on social media. That's all fine and dandy, actually seeking people out to block them is weird.

I'm mainly saying I'm worried about him going through social media as I don't think he's the type that will cope with the fans turning on him.
