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.

Signed by Neil Warnock to boost his side's promotion push in March 1996, Corazzin was an exciting signing by Argyle standards. A Canadian international, the 24-year-old striker had scored 43 goals in two-and-a-half seasons at Cambridge United and cost the Pilgrims £150,000. What raised eyebrows around Home Park was that Argyle already had an established front pairing in Adrian Littlejohn and Mickey Evans - so Corazzin's signing was seen as a rare but welcome luxury.
Indeed, the former Winnipeg Fury and Vancouver 86ers hitman had to be content with a handful of substitute appearances as Argyle won promotion through the playoffs - though he did at least open his account for the club before season's end, scoring a penalty with practically his first touch as a substitute in a 1-0 win against Mansfield. Corazzin was in and out of the side as Argyle consolidated in 1996/97 following promotion into the third tier, and only established himself in the side when Evans was sold to Southampton in late February. Three goals up until the end of the season - to add to the three he had already chalked up before Evans' departure - offered a modest but respectable return from what had been a stop-start season for the Canadian.
The following season, however, saw Corazzin finally hit his stride in Devon. Given an extended run in the side by new boss Mick Jones, the stocky North American with boyish good looks took until 18 October to open his 97/98 account, but that strike in a 3-2 defeat to Southend proved to be something of a catalyst. By the end of the season, Corazzin had 17 goals to his name - all in the league - including a devastating six-goal burst in nine mid-winter games. Sadly, Corazzin's team-mates were not quite as effective, and Argyle were relegated back into the basement division after winning just six of the 16 games in which Corazzin found the net.
As the club's most saleable asset, the Canadian's exit was inevitable and he duly signed for Northampton Town in June 1998. Two seasons at Sixfields were followed by three years at Oldham Athletic, after which he returned to his homeland to see out his career with Vancouver Whitecaps.
