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.

LINO SOUSA (aka DA CRUZ SOUSA)
Full Name: Lino Gonšalo Sousa
Born: 19 January 2005
Came from: Aston Villa Went to:
First game: 03 February 2024 Last game: 20 February 2024
Appearances: 5 (2/3) Goals: 0
Born in Portugal, Sousa moved with his family to Wolverhampton from Lisbon at the age of eight, where he played for Aspire FC before joining West Bromwich Albion's academy. At the age of 16, he represented the West Brom youth team that made it to the semi-finals of the FA Youth Cup in 2021, beating Tottenham and Everton along the way before losing out to Aston Villa.
In January 2022, Sousa moved from West Brom to Arsenal and in the summer of the same year took part in the first-team pre-season training camp in Germany. He impressed so much that he was named in the travelling party for the Gunners' UEFA Europa League match against FC Zurich and was given a place on the bench for their Premier League clash against Brentford that September, following a debut for Arsenal under-21s in the Football League Trophy against Cambridge United. He was also called up to the England under-18 squad for the first time, rounding off a busy start to the 2022-23 season. Two more appearances in the Football League Trophy followed and in March 2023, he made his England under-18 debut against Croatia. A month later he earned a call up to the Portuguese under-18 squad before returning to Arsenal.
Sousa also featured for the England under-19s during the early stages of the 2023-24 campaign, his debut coming in a narrow, 1-0 loss against Germany. He featured again for Arsenal under-21s, scoring his first goal against Swindon Town in the Football League Trophy. On the last day of the January 2024 transfer window, the left-back made the permanent switch to Aston Villa and within hours of his move being finalised, he travelled to Home Park to join Argyle on loan for the rest of the 2023-24 season, the sixth new arrival in a busy few weeks.
