WHEN we've got five outfield players on the bench, who would go in goal if there was an injury problem? Paul, e-mail
Jacko says: IT is something I've mentioned to Boothy and he would be our emergency keeper in that situation.
You are really looking for whoever fancies doing the job - and Boothy wouldn't mind having a go.
I can tell him and everyone else, though, that it's the most nerve-wracking experience in football.
During my career with Chester City, I went in goal twice.
I remember playing against Leyton Orient and someone hitting a shot from about 30 yards which went past me so slowly it trickled over the line and didn't even hit the net!
On the other occasion, I managed to keep a clean sheet - so I've set the standard for Boothy if he ever gets the chance.
WILL Nathan Clarke be offered a new contract before the end of the season or, as he refused to sign an extra year when his current deal was agreed, do we assume he doesn't see his future at Town? Gary Hargreaves, Golcar
Jacko says: NATHAN is a big part of what we are planning at this club.
I did speak to Clarkey last year about extending his contract and, quite rightly, he was keen to see which division we would be in before committing himself further.
He was quite within his rights to do that and we understood exactly where he was coming from.
Nathan does want to play for Huddersfield Town and I am sure we will have talks about his contract at some stage over the next couple of months.
As everyone knows, I rate Nathan very highly - as I do his brother Tom - and he is one player who I don't want to leave this football club.
IT appears to me the most talented forward we have is Abbott. He also works better with Boothy in a partnership which produces goals, so why start with Junior Mendes? Lee, Mirfield
Jacko says: JUNIOR has done really well for his workrate, movement and touch and I've been pleased with that.
It's fair to say, though, that he hasn't really looked like scoring. He has never had a clear-cut chance in any of the three games we've played so far.
I have had a word with Junior about the way things have gone and, as a new signing, he is obviously desperate to impress and to do as well as he can.
I have no doubt he will score goals for us, it's just that a decent chance hasn't fallen his way so far.
I felt Junior looked very sharp in pre-season and that's why he earned a place in the starting line-up.
If anyone had asked me on the opening day of pre-season what my first choice frontline partnership was, I would probably have said Boothy and Pav.
Junior looked excellent in all the build-up, tough, and that's why I've given him his chance.
I've been delighted with the way Pav has responded to that, though, he has worked extremely hard, looked lively when coming on as a substitute, scored the winner at Stockport and, I'm sure, it will only be a matter of time before he gets a chance in the side.
Like I've said to everyone else, it is then a matter of grabbing the opportunity and making the most of it. The combination of strikers seems to be the biggest talking point at the moment and, if you asked 100 fans, you would probably get a lot of different permutations for the whole of the team.
We do have strong competition in all departments and that's great, but I have to pick the team and I stick by my decisions because I take the responsibility.
With strikers, it's nice to have a talented crop at our disposal - John McAliskey was among the goals for the Reserves and looked to be in outstanding form - and I have no worries we'll put a couple of blanks behind us and get back on the board with some goals.
As for Boothy, his workrate, height and strength in the air have already been a telling factor and I felt he was outstanding on the opening day over at Stockport.
Boothy's game is all about getting the right service, though, and I don't think we've achieved that properly as yet.
Boothy is the best I know at getting on the end of a good cross.
If you put the ball in the right place he will score or set someone else up, so we need to produce that.
IN recent games our passing through midfield has been sub-standard. Could Lee Fowler be the answer to this, instead of us booting the ball aimlessly towards Boothy? Scott, Leeds
Jacko says: DESPITE the result the other night, I was quite pleased with some of the football we played, especially in the first 25 minutes when conditions weren't the best.
I thought we moved the ball well through Carss and Worthington and Brandon did okay on his first start.
Danny Schofield could count himself a bit unlucky to be left out, but we never really got Danny onto the ball in the first two matches and that's why I thought Brandon might give us a bit of extra spark.
I think the thing to bear in mind is that it's still early days and things will work themselves out.
We know we can play an awful lot better than we have and, hopefully, we will quickly start to show that.
In reference to Lee Fowler, we brought him to the club to pass the ball and influence games and, when he gets the chance of a start, it will be up to Lee to show what he can do, just like it's up to him to battle to be in the side.
WHY do you continue to make Sodje a first choice. Surely we have a more reliable alternative? Jim, e-mail
Jacko says: EFE has done okay in the matches so far, but he hasn't played like he can do.
In pre-season he was fine, but he disappointed at Stockport and I brought him off in a re-shuffle.
As I've said, he has done okay but at the moment he is not the outstanding centre-back we had last season.
Efe is well aware of that and knows that he needs to improve, otherwise he will be out of the team.
That's the nature of competition for places and we've got the likes of Steve Yates, John McCombe and Nat Brown all knocking at the door.
Don't write off Efe, though. He will come good.
HAS Coca-Cola League I proved more tricky so far than you thought at the outset? Barry, Crosland Hill
Jacko says: WE always knew we were making a big step up, but I will be able to answer the question better around Christmas, when we've had the chance to play everyone in the division.
This league certainly hasn't disappointed me and the lads are up for it.
We got three points at Stockport and I fancy them to do well, Chesterfield were very well organised against us and, likewise, Hartlepool, who were in the play-offs last season.
Certainly the standard is higher than the division we have just come from because attendances are bigger, stadia are better and the quality of player is much higher.
But I am confident in my players and confident in our ability. We are here to do ourselves justice.
