BEFORE I start the question and answer session I'd like to pass on a message to the fans.
I know people are getting a bit disgruntled at the moment, but we will bounce back.
Keep backing myself and the players, because we've got a lot to look forward to over the next few years.
The club is in a much more solid situation financially than it was and we've got probably the best crop of young players we've had in years.
It is going to be a bit of a roller coaster, but stick behind us because we ARE going to go back to the Championship in the not too distant future.
Keep the faith!
DO you agree we are at a stage where, funds permitting, we need to bring in two or three players who could make us a very good side? Ian Ashness, Wakefield; Nigel Wright, e-mail
Jacko says: I DON'T think we are far off being a very, very good side in any case.
We have had some excellent results this season and some poor ones, so the logical conclusion is that we aren't consistent enough.
I am very pleased with my squad, even though we could do without the injuries we've got at the moment to Andy Booth, Akpo Sodje, Steve Yates and Ian Gray.
It is easy for people to say after a performance like last Saturday's that we need more players, but I've got complete faith in the ones we've got.
They are giving me everything - except consistency! - and that's something we are working hard to put right.
WHAT have you got against Pawel Abbott? He seems to be the only one criticised publicly - Cheltenham last season and Wrexham this. Dave H, Shepley
Jacko says: I HAVE nothing whatsoever against Pawel Abbott.
But I set high standards for him and when he falls below those standards, then I criticise him.
If anyone had seen him after the Cheltenham game last season when we were in training for the Lincoln play-off, then they would have done exactly the same as me.
He didn't look as if he was interested any more because things hadn't gone our way at Cheltenham and he didn't look like he wanted to be here, so I left him out.
I got exactly the response I was looking for, though, Pav picked himself up and he played at Cardiff, where he helped us to achieve the result we wanted.
Once again, I left him out at the start of this season, but he responded in the right way and he's now one of the top scorers in the entire Coca-Cola League.
You're right in that I don't often criticise my players publicly - although I did point out both Pav and Junior Mendes didn't play as I wanted at Torquay - but I am always on their backs after matches and in training if I don't think they've done well.
It is a known fact that I don't like players being slack. Pav sometimes has a tendancy to slip into that, and that's when I pick him up on it.
Everyone knows how much I feel about the team and the squad as a group, though, and I hate it when I feel they are letting themselves down, so that's why I sometimes have a go.
Pav hasn't played too well over the last couple of weeks, but then again we probably haven't given him the best service.
But I know I'll get the right response from Pav because he's a talented young player.
He will be back.
WHY do you persist in not playing Lee Fowler? Do you have issues with him, why didn't he come on last Saturday and, surely, isn't it time to give him a chance? Perturbed Terrier, e-mail; Therese, Liversedge; Greg Hobson, e-mail; Steve & Eileen, e-mail; and Andy, Huddersfield
Jacko says: LEE was very unfortunate in that I was probably going to bring him back into the team down at Colchester, when we changed things around, but he got injured and couldn't take part.
It's a case of Lee keeping his patience and waiting for a chance to break into the side.
We all know how he can perform, but he needs to be more consistent when he does play.
He is a talented player and his chance will come. I keep saying this to all the lads who are on the fringe and Lee is the same, when the chance comes it's up to them to take it.
As for any issues, I have no issues whatsoever with Lee.
He has worked very hard since the summer on his fitness and he is continuing to work hard on that with a view to being ready for that first-team call when it comes.
Last weekend, after Junior had gone on for Boothy, the next change I made was geared to getting the extra power and energy of Tony Carss into midfield.
I didn't think Danny Schofield was having a particularly good game and I thought Carssy might be able to find us that extra spark we needed to get us back in the game.
The final substitution was made to give us three up front and provide a bit more presence in the shape of Nat Brown. I felt we needed the extra striker rather than another option in midfield, so Lee missed out.
NATHAN CLARKE has the power and presence which is currently missing from midfield. Could he play a more forward role to the benefit of the team and should he play fewer long balls from the back? Martin, Manchester; Andy, Huddersfield
Jacko says: I AM delighted with Clarkey at the moment.
He is so fit and strong and he is playing outstandingly well.
When I first came to the club and he was trying to recover from all his injury problems, he always seemed to be languishing at the back in our training sessions.
Yesterday, when we had a very hard session for a Thursday because of the fact there's no senior game this weekend, Nathan was first.
I am really pleased about that and I have to say that central defence is his natural position.
Potentially, I believe he could go all the way and I'm delighted that we managed last week to get him tied up on a contract for the remainder of this season and two more.
I don't see him as a midfield player, except perhaps in an emergency, and you will see over the next few years that Nathan will really make a big impact and a name for himself as a top central defender.
WITH our problems in midfield, why isn't Adnan Ahmed getting a chance? Harry, Huddersfield; Tim, Bradford
Jacko says: COMPETITION for places in midfield is very strong and that's why he hasn't figured so far, but I am very pleased with Adnan's progress.
He has been very consistent in the Reserves, with the odd exception, and I like him as a person and his attitude as a player.
He's a strong tackler, a hard worker and if he keeps on going like he is, his chance will come.
WOULD Jon Stead provide the `X factor' we are missing, some more goals? Martin, Manchester
Jacko says: THERE is no chance of getting Steady back here on loan and he's injured at the moment in any case.
We were scoring goals for fun before Junior went off to Montserrat and disrupted his partnership with Pav, which was flourishing, but I still think we've got goal power and creativity.
Pav is still on course to get the 25 goals we need from a frontman, but we do need others chipping in.
KEEP your head up Jacko as we can use this break to re-charge our batteries. What have we been doing in training this week? Chris, e-mail
Jacko says: WE'VE just been working hard to get ready for Swindon on Wednesday.
We'll rest to freshen up this weekend and then we're raring to go through December.
As for our heads, they are well and truly up. We are four points off the play-off zone and aiming to close that gap as quickly as we can.
