[QUOTE=GiggityGiggityGiggityGoo;2289671]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.[/QUOTE]

It's not the same thing. He doesn't report to the fans for work.

But if we are going to roll with what you're saying, you don't have to have your boss on your social media. He is not refusing to respond to emails and take calls. I do not have an obligation to have my boss on my Facebook or Twitter account. If I wish to block them, for the sake of my own sanity, I can. By the same logic, he has no obligation to have the fans on his social media.

There is no issue here, just some fans feeling they're entitled to be on his social media account.

Aren't those in charge fans? Aren't WST members able to get to the top table like everyone else? He's blocking members, those who in turn could be making the big decisions in the future.

Some of you really need to grasp what fan ownership really is.

Seeking out people making valid critiques is weird. The issue is many weren't aware he had a twitter account, haven't linked him to tweets and been blocked. John Mills style.

I have grasped what fan ownership is, and I understand making valid critiques. But you've completely missed the point.

His social media account is his. It has nothing to do with the club, the WST, the fans. If he wishes to block people on there, that is his right. The fans are not entitled to be on there. Just like your boss is not entitled to be on your social media.

Yes people are elected to represent the WST membership. Those are the people who are in charge. You, as a fan and a WST member, are not. You have a vote and can run for the board. You are not directly in charge nor a boss. Brian Hughes does not answer to you or any other fan.

That is how fan ownership works. We elect people in to represent us and be the boss.

If Brian Hughes wishes to potentially anger someone who may one day be in charge, that is his prerogative. He doesn't have to have the fans on his social media accounts.

It's literally nothing to do with Wrexham FC, it's his own personal social media account. What a stretch.

His accounts private and has been for yonks, those unaware he had an account have still been blocked.


Again, you've missed the point. You seem to be suggesting those running the show aren't fans once more.

Fans are now playing on this knowing it's winding him up, it also raises concerns regarding the clubs policies on social media. Do they provide employees with with help and advice like other clubs do?

Like I say seeking out people who you can pick and choose who follow you on social media is weird.

It doesn't matter if he is blocking people, that is up to him. Fans can't get mad about it because he has every right to do so.

I haven't missed the point at all. I did not suggest that once, can you show me where? I am countering what you've said, in that the fans aren't directly Brian Hughes's boss. You were saying he is blocking his bosses. He isn't.

'Brian Hughes does not answer to you or any other fan.'

Those at the top aren't fans, well one apparently isn't.

Right sorry, I see how that's caused confusion. I meant he doesn't answer to the non-elected fans. He answers to the Wrexham AFC board and WST board.

If only he put as much focus into preparing adequately for games, training sounds appalling very Mills-esq

Points out the vanity and arrogance of the fella, perhaps why some players dislike him.

Haha clutching at straws there. Blocking a handful of nobheads on Twitter is now comparable to Mills' piss-up preparation?

He's not the right man for the job but for the final time, it's his personal account. Stop crying about it.
