WHAT was it like to win on penalties and who would have been our fifth penalty taker? Russell Dawson, e-mail
Jacko says: IT was an incredible feeling to win and I was confident all the way through the shoot-out.
Steve Yates would have taken our fifth penalty and, had it gone past that, Efe Sodje would have taken the sixth.
I think that's why he got himself carried off!
All our penalties were superbly taken and the practice we did through the week undoubtedly paid off.
We didn't just take the penalties. We did the walk from the half way line and had proper competitions against the lads who weren't going to be involved.
Rob Edwards, Danny Schofield and Tony Carss were excellent all week and, in Sunday's final session, Steve Yates missed his kick - hitting the post.
Sodje then stepped up to take his but it ended up in a farmer's field somewhere and we are still looking for the ball!
That's how we ended up with our order and I was really surprised when Mansfield chose to let us go first in the shoot-out.
It was their choice, but I knew Rob, Danny and Carssy would all score, absolutely guaranteed.
When it came down to the crunch, I was really pleased it was Lee Fowler who got the glory in his home city. To score the winning penalty to seal promotion was wonderful for Lee.
I was really disappointed for Sodje, in all fairness, that he didn't get to go up for a medal and to take part in all the celebrations until last night's civic reception.
He loves playing for the club and he shows the same passion and desire as me to do well. That's what I demand of all my squad and Sodje was outstanding in the final.
We were all delighted he was okay and the injury wasn't serious and he was back in at the club with the rest of us on Tuesday morning.
It would be wrong to talk about the shoot-out without mentioning Paul Rachubka, too.
He is very thorough in his preparations for every match, studying the reports we get on the opposition and making sure he is as clued-up as possible.
It was no different on Monday and, having found out that we'd got film from YTV of the Mansfield play-off semi-final against Northampton, he studied the penalty shoot-out closely.
His save from Wayne Corden really helped put Mansfield on the back foot and, when Liam Lawrence then missed their second kick, I think most people started to relax a little.
WHEN are you getting the players back in for pre-season training? Carol, Holmfirth
Jacko says: IT IS important at the moment that the players have a nice, well-earned rest, but it won't last for long!
They had originally been due to return on July 1 but, since our season has been extended by three weeks and they've worked hard, they will now come back to the club on Monday, July 5.
I think a lot of our success this season has stemmed from the fact we had an excellent pre-season last year and that set us up as being a very fit squad.
Because the break is shorter this time the lads won't lose as much fitness - I thought some of them were in poor condition when we started out last time - but that doesn't mean it won't be a tough pre-season for them.
I want them strong and fit and keen to do well when we go into battle in the Second Division and I am sure they will be.
At least we'll have a few more people to work with than the eight we had for the first day of pre-season last year"
YOU have said you wish to strengthen the squad. In which areas are you looking to bring in new players? John Robinson, Honley
Jacko says: WE are always looking for good players who we can bring into the club without over stretching our budget.
I have always said, though, that it's vital to bring in better quality than you have already got.
If you don't do that you will be standing still and, in this game, that is effectively going backwards.
We don't intend to do that because we are very much on the up, so I'm looking at all areas of the squad - defence, midfield and forwards.
WILL you be bringing Paul Rachubka back to the club? Dennis, Shepley
Jacko says: POSSIBLY.
Paul has done tremendously for me, but much depends on the fitness of Ian Gray.
He is still trying to overcome the hand injury he suffered in the FA Cup at Accrington and he will be working through the summer to see if he can get it sorted.
WHAT were Terry Yorath's reactions at Cheltenham and, then again, at the Millennium on Monday? Judith Pennington, e-mail
Jacko says: NEEDLESS to say, we were both devastated after our draw at Cheltenham, combined with Torquay's win at Southend, meant that we missed out on automatic promotion only on goal difference.
A total of 81 points is more often than not good enough to take a team up, but it wasn't for us.
I tend to show my emotions a lot more than Taff, but that doesn't mean he's made of rock.
He took the events of that Saturday afternoon very hard but he, like me, realised we still had another chance and it was important we made the most of it.
You can imagine, therefore, how proud Terry was to win promotion in his home city and, when someone who has achieved as much as he has in his career says it's the best success he's been associated with, that puts things into perspective.
Taff had a great day, as did we all, and he was particulary proud that his family and friends were there, except Gabby, who was ill and had to stay at home with her husband, Kenny.
FOLLOWING this season's roller-coaster ride, how do you keep your motivation? Paul Cross, Outlane
Jacko says: FANS have said about it being a roller-coaster season and nerve wracking and all the rest, but multiply how they feel by 100 and you are somewhere near to what it's been like for me.
I am motivated by wanting to win and wanting success for this football club.
I want to take Huddersfield Town forward and it upsets me when we get the slightest knock-back that the critics are out in force.
Even since our win on Monday, some people have been moaning.
We have just taken a big step back along the road to where we want to be and enjoyed a magnificent, victorious day at one of the best venues there is.
I realise criticism is part and parcel of the game, but let's look at the bigger picture.
I always want the best for my players and I don't like it when people stick the knife in.
I care passionately about this club and I can tell all our fans that the players do too.
They are always going to have the odd bad game - everyone does, exept perhaps Arsenal! - but the players have brought pride and passion back to Huddersfield Town and it would be nice if the critics, just for once, got off their high horses and recognised the fact.
I am not going to finish my season of Examiner columns on that note, however, because we have achieved too much for that.
The players deserve massive credit for bringing this club a wonderful promotion prize and they have given me everything over the course of the campaign.
They have had an excellent team spirit throughout, they have been fully committed and, since that defeat at Macclesfield which gave us an extra focus, they have lost only four times in 28 matches.
Many of those have been big, high-profile games against the leading sides in our division and we have come through excellently.
Our aim now is to keep the momentum going into next season because we are on a high, the playing squad are on a high and the fans are on a high.
Next season's list of derbies is a cracker, it wouldn't surprise me if we had some 20,000 crowds down at the McAlpine, which would be tremendous for a Second Division club, and we are all looking forward to the challenge.
I would like to thank everyone who went to Cardiff to support us and who turned out again last night for the parade and reception.
It was fantastic and my message, as always, is: Keep the faith!
