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 hard 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.

Liverpool-born Forshaw joined Everton's Youth Academy in 2000, where he spent all of his youth career. His first-team debut for the Toffees came in the Europa League in December 2009, when he played the full 90 minutes against BATE Borisov at Goodison Park. He went on to make the most appearances for the reserve team during the 2009-10 season and during the following campaign was rewarded with a Premier League bow, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 3-0 victory over Wolves at Molineux. Named as reserve team player of the year, he signed a one-year contract extension in June 2011 before joining Brentford on loan eight months later. After seven appearances, his time with the Bees was cut short when he suffered a broken jaw against Rochdale, returning to Merseyside and his parent club.
In May 2012, Forshaw signed for Brentford in a permanent deal and settled swiftly at Griffin Park, his first league goal coming in a 1-0 win over Oldham just a month or so into the new campaign. Brentford suffered Play Off heartbreak in his first season at the club as they lost at Wembley against Yeovil Town, the midfielder having netted the winning penalty against Swindon in the semis. There was to be no such drama the following season as Mark Warburton's side returned to the Championship after a 21-year absence, Forshaw gaining recognition as he was named League One Player of the Year, also making it into the PFA Team of the Season. His time at Brentford, which yielded 11 goals in 83 appearances in all competitions, drew to a close at the start of the 2014-15 season with a move to Wigan Athletic on a four-year contract.
However, after 17 appearances for the Latics, he moved to Middlesbrough in January 2015 for a reported fee of £2 million. Boro ended the campaign as beaten Play Off finalists, Forshaw watching from the bench as they lost 2-0 to Norwich City. As with Brentford, there was to be no mistake in search of promotion the following season as Boro finished runners-up, Forshaw making 34 appearances and scoring twice as the North-East outfit reclaimed their Premier League status.
A tough season followed for Middlesbrough, although Forshaw made 35 appearances during their relegation from the top tier. A return to the Championship beckoned and in January 2018, he joined Leeds United for £4.5 million. The 2018-19 season saw the Whites lose out in the Championship Play Offs to Derby, an injury to Forshaw ruling him out of the second leg of the semi-final that saw the Rams triumph 4-3 on aggregate. After a positive start to the following season, he suffered a troublesome hip injury that necessitated surgery at the Steadman Clinic in Colorado, USA. It was almost two years before he was fit enough to play again, his return to the Leeds side coming in a League Cup encounter with Crewe. 26 appearances followed during the 2021-22 season as the football world readjusted to life after COVID-19, while the following campaign ended with Forshaw being released by Leeds.
In August 2023, Forshaw signed for Norwich City, and a league cup debut against Bristol City saw his career with the Canaries get off to a winning start, but by the midway point of the season, his opportunities at Carrow Road had been somewhat limited. On January 19th, 2024, he signed for Argyle to become Head Coach Ian Foster's fifth new recruit since his arrival.
