Oxblogger is a blog about Oxford United. It doesn’t do match reports, if you need to know who scored what, when and how then I recommend that you read Rage Online, the Oxford Mail or the Official Oxford United Website. It is not authoritative, comprehensive or consistent, it is entirely personal; which is just how a blog should be, in my view.

It started in 2006 after the club were relegated from the Football League. That seemed a good time to start a blog about the club – its original aim was to track our progress to a European Cup win some time in the future – that is, from its lowest to its highest point.

This was inspired by Arseblog, which tracked Arsenal’s progress including and beyond their 2006 European Cup Final appearance. It was also inspired by Manchester United’s 1999 European Cup win on the basis that someone in the stadium that night must have also endured their 1974 relegation to the 2nd Division – the journey from that low to that high seemed a good one to document. We haven’t quite made it yet.

Still, we’ve managed three trips to Wembley, two promotions, a few giant killings and so many derby wins over Swindon, I’ve lost count.

At the start of 2019 I transferred this blog over to WordPress because that seemed like a fun thing to do.
