DO you feel Andy Booth is getting the quality of crosses that his brilliant aerial ability deserves? Peter Ellis, Kirkheaton
Jacko says: I AGREE that Boothy is brilliant in the air and, yes, perhaps the service could be better.
There are times when we are getting in good positions and not delivering the right ball.
On the other hand, we've got two lads playing wide at the moment in Danny Schofield and Chris Brandon who are well capable of getting to the goalline and putting in good crosses.
And I've always said to all the lads that if we get the right type of service into the box for Boothy, he will score goals and he will create havoc.
Since I came back to the club, I couldn't ask any more of Boothy.
He was outstanding last year and, while he's been injured a couple of times this season, he is still turning in quality performances.
Over the last two seasons, I think you can count the number of poor games he's had on the fingers of one hand.
WE seem to be playing a lot of high, hopeful balls up to Boothy at the moment. Is this a deliberate tactic or just a symptom of lack of confidence in the squad? Andy, Huddersfield
Jacko says: LOOKING back to last weekend's match against Luton, I thought we played some really good football in the first half.
It was only later on, when we had four strikers on the pitch, that we started to be more direct - which is inevitable.
The idea was simply to get the ball forward as quickly as we could in the closing stages to try and grab an equaliser and, thankfully, it paid off with Luke Beckett's fantastic late strike to earn a deserved point.
Boothy is an outlet to get the ball forward when we need him.
And it's an outlet which perhaps isn't necessarily there when, for instance, Pawel Abbott and Junior Mendes play together.
The one thing you know for certain with Boothy is that if you get the ball forward early he will compete for it and, on the very rare occasions he doesn't win the first ball, he will challenge for the second.
WHERE is Chris Beech playing nowadays? Steve, Eileen and Family, e-mail
Jacko says: CHRIS visited the club this week because he was on a course at the stadium.
He is now the manager of Bury's Academy set-up and he is playing alongside his brother in non-League football for Fleetwood.
HAVE you ever thought of persuading Steve Yates to postpone his retirement? Joanne, e-mail
Jacko says: NO, I haven't.
Steve made the decision quite early in the season and told me well before he actually announced it that he was thinking of hanging up his boots.
He has been excellent for this club, a tremendous signing, and that's not just for his performances and his attitude.
The help he has given to our young players in terms of how to go about their job and with programmes for their weight and fitness has been absolutely invaluable.
Once a player has made his mind up that he's going to retire, though, I don't think it's right to try and change their mind.
Steve knows how he feels and never at any stage have I tried to talk him around.
He has been an outstanding servant to the club, there's no doubt about that, but he's decided to call it a day and I respect his decision.
WHY did you decide to use David Mirfin at right-back against Luton? Steve, Eileen and Family, e-mail
Jacko says: MIRF is strong, quick and versatile and, last weekend, I didn't have too many options for the position.
Andy Holdsworth is out after hernia surgery and Nat Brown, who has been playing there, was unavailable because of a friend's bereavement - that's why he's not travelling tomorrow.
I could have played young Tom Clarke there, but with Nathan and Sodje to play in the centre I opted for Mirf.
He has a lot of qualities and he's also been working hard on his distribution, which can let him down at times.
Mirf's best position, though, will eventually be at centre-back.
DO you think we'll reach the play-offs this season? JV, Huddersfield
Jacko says: IT is a big ask.
But with 15 games to go including tomorrow's trip down to MK Dons, it is certainly not out of the question.
As I said last week, we are probably looking for 10 wins - and teams have achieved that from similar positions to ours in the past.
It's a question of getting on that run which we've been talking about, because when you string two or three wins together, confidence builds.
It can be done with a terrific run, but we have to be realistic and admit that games are running out.
If we are going to do it, we have to get that winning habit soon.
It happened for us last season and it can happen for us again.
One thing you can be certain of is that while the mathematics say it can be done, we'll be going for it.
WHY do we seem to have such trouble in bringing loan signings to the club? Is it because we don't have good enough relationships with other clubs, or is it because we don't like working with agents, which puts us behind other clubs? Steve, Eileen and Family, e-mail
Jacko says: WITH loan signings, you first have to determine whether a club will let you have the player in question and then, whether they are prepared to come to you.
We have no problems with other clubs or with agents, it's just difficult to bring in the right quality of signing.
I could make loan signing after loan signing without any problem - it's just that they wouldn't be as good as the players we've already got.
I have watched the Reserve teams of all the big clubs this season and the people they would allow to come out on loan are no better than what we've got.
In fact, ours are a better bet because most of them have now got 50, 60 and 70 games of experience under their belts.
I am not going to make signings just for the sake of it.
With Luke Beckett, I had to wait three weeks for Sheffield United to let him come to us, but I knew we were getting quality.
At the time, I remember being criticised in some quarters because people said we needed a defender, not a striker, but opinions seem to have changed now because Luke has done what I knew he would do for us.
Hopefully, we will be able to extend his loan period beyond tomorrow's match but I just don't know at this stage.
His record is excellent and there are now other clubs taking a very serious interest in him.
As I said in the Examiner a couple of days ago, I knew at the outset - and so did the board - that we would not be able to make Luke a permanent signing.
A six-figure transfer fee and the big wages that he's on at Bramall Lane put him out of our price range at the moment, I'm afraid.
I am continuing, however, to work very hard on bringing in a defender and, hopefully, before the transfer deadline next month, we might have one or two new faces in.
That will only happen if I know the lads coming in are better than the ones we already have - but it's fingers crossed my inquiries pay off in the next week or so.
