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.
Thanks to Dave Rowntree for many of the player images after 1984.

Mumba joined his new teammates at Home Park in mid-July 2022 on a season-long loan from Norwich City, to become Argyle's fourth signing of the summer.
Born in South Shields, the highly rated full-back began his football at nearby Sunderland at the age of 8. His progress through the ranks at the Stadium of Light was rewarded in his teenage years with selection for England at all levels from under 16 to 19. He made his senior debut as an 87th minute substitute on the last day of the 2017-18 Championship season, aged just 16. Six months later, he signed his first professional contract and was involved with the Black Cats' first team squad over the following two years, as well as playing regularly for the under-23 side. In all, he made ten first-team appearances for Sunderland, including a late substitution at Home Park in November 2018.
In early March 2020, Mumba was loaned to his hometown club, South Shields, to gain regular first team experience, only for the Northern Premier League season to be cut short three weeks later because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Still only 18, he was snapped up by Norwich City that summer, and in his first two seasons at Carrow Road made ten first-team appearances, including 45 minutes in a Premier League match against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium and an EFL Cup game at home to Liverpool.
Mumba spent the second half of the 2021-22 season on loan at Peterborough United, playing 13 times for the Championship side and scoring his first senior goal on his Posh debut.
A step-down to League One when he agreed a season-long loan at Home Park might have seemed a backward step, but Mumba, still only 20, was impressed with Home Park, the Club and its fans, saying: "It looks like the right club for me to look to develop and push on. It's a step that I need." Manager Steven Schumacher added: "Bali Mumba will add pace, directness and excitement to our right wing-back department this season. The physical demands required in that area of the pitch for us are immense, so having real competition now on both sides will improve our chances."
Sorry, new contributions are not accepted until the player leaves the club.
