Greens on Screen’s first page was published in January 1999. Its early purpose was to bring Plymouth Argyle a little closer to those unable to see their team, and whilst it has changed a great deal over the years, its core themes - sites and sounds for Westcountry exiles - still stand. The site was very lucky to take on the content of Trevor Scallan’s Semper Viridis in the summer of 2007, and in 2009 launched GoS-DB, a wealth of facts and figures from PAFC’s history. A year later we embarked on a complete history of Argyle, with much-valued contributions from chapter authors.

Greens on Screen is an amateur website and proud of it. It is run by one person as a hobby, although there have been aspects of the site over the years that would be much the poorer without the had work and much-valued contributions of a small band of volunteers.

Greens on Screen is self-taught and as a result, a little bit quirky. Amongst a few stubborn principles, advertisements will never appear (and don’t get me started on the plague of betting promotions on other sites). It began its life before many others, including the club’s official site, when there was a large gap to be filled, and although there is now a wide variety to choose from, GoS’s sole aim, to be a service to fellow supporters, still seems to have a place.

Argyle 2  Barnsley 2

Saturday, January 29th, 1994;  FA Cup Round 4

The PAFC100 video has brought back some marvellous memories, and up there with the best of them are these wonderful goals in the 4th round of the FA Cup in 1994. In those days Barnsley were a 1st Division side with players like Gerry Taggart, Andy Payton and Danny Wilson, and when they took the lead just before half-time the writing was on the wall. But it all turned in the first 13 minutes of the second half with these two gems. Barnsley struck back after 71 minutes to save the tie, and went on to win the replay by a single goal.

Jon Lambert: The best goal I can remember is in the FA Cup v Barnsley at Home Park, scored by Dwight Marshall. The game finished 2-2, and the goals was typical of that season's team under Shilton: a free-flowing move, involving lots of passes starting from our own box. Dwight beat a couple of defenders out wide right, cut inside and finished.

Andrew Smith: The best goal, in my opinion, was scored by Paul Dalton v Barnsley in the FA Cup in 1994. Marshall's was also fantastic, but Dalton seemed to glide past all the defenders effortlessly. He was a quality player.
