The U 23’s play their 3rd match in just over a week when they play Sunderland U 23’s in a PL 2 div 2 match on Monday March 16th KO 1pm. The Reading FC website is saying the match will take place at Hogwood, i would imagine that it will be the same as the recent West Ham match and take place at Bearwood.
Sunderland`s league results this season stands at P 18 W 0 D 1 L 17. Their only point being a draw away at Stoke in August !!!

Sounds like we have rejected Baleares' request to extend Holsgrove's loan for their playoffs. A very surprising decision. It clearly implies he's not far from the first team, but even allowing for that, surely staying a couple of weeks longer to play in high stakes games would be more beneficial for him? Or are the club about to announce Pele and Adam are leaving on 30 June?

If after the first couple of games any outside chance of the play-offs is gone then I would fully expect players like Holsgrove to get minutes in July.

July could well end up being a competitive pre-season.

The club obviously have their own plans in mind with regards to Holsgrove but I personally would have thought he'd get more out of finishing the season at Baleares.

He won't be able to play for Reading this season under the new rules. Players out on loan currently are not eligible to play for their parent club this season so it does seem odd to we are not letting him play in Spain. Can only think the club are concerned about the injury as they expect him to step up next season.

Ah ok, I thought that was only the rule for loans within England - see Wilks going back to Barnsley to sit out the season - didn't realise it encompassed international loans as well.

It's nonsensical then. Even if he could play for us, surely a playoff with promotion on the line is better for his development than a few mid table games?

I guess he could do his ACL in them or break a leg. Our thinking may be that simple. I'd be pretty pissed if Chelsea did that with Miazga on the same basis.

Seems completely baffling to not let him complete the Spanish season. Can only presume the club see Jordan contributing to/playing in the first team next season and therefore want to ensure he gets experience of being around the first team on match days and avoids any risk of injury before going straight into preseason training.

But you'd also have to say that 3rd tier Spanish football isn't better for development than 2nd tier English football.

I'd rather him playing in games this season that don't mean anything against players he is going to be playing against next season. Gives him a much better development imo.
