Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Hoops fans, rejoice. This afternoon FC Dallas announced that star forward Kenny Cooper isn’t going anywhere, at least not this season. Here's what FC Dallas general manager Michael Hitchcock has to say on the subject:

"We received offers from multiple international clubs for Kenny Cooper during this transfer window, but we elected to decline them all. The international interest is a credit to Kenny, FC Dallas and the ever increasing talent level in Major League Soccer. Winning championships is our priority, and we feel strongly that Kenny will continue to be an important part of our success as we compete for the MLS Cup this year and in the future."

The next transfer window for European clubs is in January, so expect the Cooper-is-gone talk to resume then, because the Jesuit grad is only going to get better. --Jesse Hyde

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
