I hope it's not the gearbox itself, they are prone to failure on the Mk 2's, the Mk3's (56 plate onwards) should be trouble free.

Does the gear bulk with the engine off if so then its cables if not then the clutch is not stopping the gears rotating which is usualy air in the clutch hydrolics. syncro should not be an issue unless its been like this for some time and has now worn that syncro out do the cheapest first and bleed the clutch
