I can't find the original but his Wiki page quotes an article from FourFourTwo tilted "The Top Ten Worst Foreign Flops in SLeague History."

"By mid-season 2010, the club decided to release Fante due to his goalscoring ineptitude."

Ouch.

Adam Straith has signed with Hansa Rostock in the German 3. Liga. His current club, Lotte, were relegated on Saturday from the 3. Liga. 

Damn. No CPL homecoming with Pacific I guess.

This is definitely a upward move for him. Rostock is a much bigger club than Lotte, who were pretty much the smallest club in the 3. Liga. Rostock will likely be contenders for promotion next season and I'm pretty sure his wages will increase as well.

Adam has been in Germany for almost a decade now? He probably is settled in Germany, its his home and who knows maybe has a wife from there.

Except for those two years in Norway, 2017 with Edmonton and a few trials around the world in between.  It could be as simple as staying in 3.L with possibility of moving to B2 is more attractive (and possibly more lucrative) then coming home to be a big fish in a small pond.   CPL is starting. It will grow and as it does more players will choose it.  Until then, nothing wrong with sticking with the European option.

Ryan Whittingham was on trial with Jihlava (Czech Republic 2nd tier) this week.  He was with Velka Bites (4th tier) two seasons ago, and also spent a month with Karvina U21.

Carl Haworth has 4 goals and 4 assists in 15 USL games this year. And this is almost entirely from the right back position. He's also the captain of a USL side that is unbeaten in their last ten games. I'm surprised he hasn't had more of an opportunity with the CMNT, especially given their relative weakness at both full back positions.

Because Haworth before this season was pretty underwhelming as a player. He was with the team for one friendly i remember but then got hurt and fell out of the picture. Also low-key I wouldn't be surprised if players with the Ottawa program are persona non-grata within the CSA.

Hasn't he played most of his career as a striker?

I think this move to FB for Haworth was just a bit last year and has maybe taken hold this year.  Remember we had Petrasso/Aird etc that were converted wingers playing at a higher level than Haworth that we have tried at RB.  Maybe its worth a shot calling him but Godinho and ZBG have been doing a pretty good job so far in the gold cup.

Herdman isn't looking at USL for new players. At least he hasn't so far. 

Also, I don't think Haworth is MNT material, especially not as a RB. He's more of a winger and we have better options.
