The list of all seasons, from the Seasons button in GoS-DB, now has a column for each campaign's final position in the Football League (FL Pos), which can be sorted using the drop-down at the top. This season was a record low, only equalled by last year.

Did I say that was it?! The fourth photo set (the 'guest set') has been considerably added to, and well worth another look (the camera icon with four stripes under). But that's it now, no more please! ;-)

1996: Steve Cherry signed a permanent contract to allow him to play just one game, a rather important match at Wembley. His second spell with Argyle had been a 3 month loan arrangement, ironically from Watford, which ended just before the play-off final. He moved on to Rotherham that summer.
BORN THIS DAY
1896: William Toms - 28 games, 5 goals between 1920 and 1921.
A bustling centre-forward who could also play at inside-left, Toms was signed from Manchester United in time for the first season of League football, but he did not ... more

Greens on Screen is run as a service to fellow supporters, in all good faith, without commercial or private gain. I have no wish to abuse copyright regulations and apologise unreservedly if this occurs. If you own any of the material used on this site, and object to its inclusion, please get in touch using the 'Contact Us' button an the top of each page.
Greens on Screenís 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 Scallanís Semper Viridis in the summer of 2007, and in 2009 launched GoS-DB, a wealth of facts and figures from PAFCís 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 Trev's help and support has been considerable and, since 2010, Andy Chapman's hard work and enthusiasm, especially his help with GoS-DB's pen-pictures, has given us a real boost. Then there's the match-day content, which would be much the poorer without the terrific contribution of a small band of photo-taking 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 donít get me started on the plague of betting promotions on other sites). It began its life before many others, including the clubís official site, when there was a large gap to be filled, and although there is now a wide variety to choose from, GoSís sole aim, to be a service to fellow supporters, still seems to have a place.
If you have any comments, criticism, bright ideas, spot any mistakes; even compliments, it's all very much appreciated.

You might have wondered why GoS-DB is represented by an image on GoS's home page, rather than a plain text link like everything else. That's simply to show that it leads to a significant amount of content - a site within a site if you like - and now it's not alone. Over on the right you see a new image for Home Park, and later in the year there'll be a third.
The new Home Park image links to a 'hub page' for everything to do with Argyle's traditional home, or at least it will. At the moment, there's still content in the form of plain text links on this page, but that will move over in the next few weeks, and Iíll resurrect a very large number of Phase 1 images and video clips. And of course, fingers crossed, it's where the development of the new Home Park stadium and surrounding area will appear.
To begin the idea, the hub's first content is a record of the Public Consultation event, held this weekend and today, and a link to leave your comments about the new proposals. If you can, get along to the Pyramid Suite between 10:00 and 17:00 today; itís a great chance to ask questions and hear Tony Campbell explain more about the grand design.
I've been staggered by your generosity! In the first 24 hours my immediate target has been reached, so thank you so much. However, I'm going to keep the donations button available for people who would still like to make a gesture to GoS - if you see what I mean! That will also allow me to build up a fund that means I won't need to come back to you for a couple of years, and if there is then any excess, I promise that will go to the club, in one form or another.
Ever since it's first appearance in 1999, Greens on Screen has been free to access, and I am determined to keep it that way. You probably realise that I've avoided any form of advertising, partly because I don't want any commercial association with the material, but mainly because adverts on web pages detract from the content - and they're so annoying!
But GoS is not free to produce or maintain, and without income from adverts, I've asked for donations in years gone by. There have been so many calls on your generosity in recent times, so I haven't asked for help for quite a while, but unfortunately the time has come when I need to rattle the GoS tin again.
So if this is a bad time for you, please ignore me. If you feel you can help, however small that might be, thank you so much.
And just a couple of things I should add:
If you make a donation, please understand that it is a voluntary gesture to help cover on-going costs. It implies no benefit on your part, or obligation on mine. For instance, if I decide to scale down (or even end) Greens on Screen at any time in the future, that's simply the way it is.
You should also be aware that 3.4% + 20p of your donation is paid to PayPal for the cost of the service.
Many thanks again!
