WHY do you continually tout David Mirfin? If I was being cynical, I'd think you were raising his profile so that he could be sold? Michelle Bennett, e-mail
Jacko says: WHEN you've got talented young players like Mirfin and Andy Holdsworth in your squad I see no reason not to talk about them.
Let's be proud of the good young players we are producing at this club.
The reason I spoke about Jonathan Stead in glowing terms last season was because I really rated him as the best young striker outside the Premiership.
I talk with enthusiasm about McAliskey, Clarke and many of our young prospects because I rate them as well.
I can't think of many better teenage centre-backs than David Mirfin in the Coca-Cola Leagues, while Andy Holdsworth could also go all the way in his career.
That's not trying to sell anyone, that's just being brutally honest with our fans about how good these lads are.
Both of them should have been in the England Under 20 side next week - it's a disgrace that they weren't picked - and I've no doubt that every scout worth his salt who has seen us play this season will have passed on to their clubs the names of Mirfin and Holdsworth.
Jon Worthington, too, is playing tremendously well and that's why I was delighted to hand him the captaincy against Morecambe the other night.
Since I returned to the club, Worthy has been one of our most improved players.
His attitude and the way he has come on in the past 16 months has been unbelievable and he has made an outstanding contribution, so there was no more fitting tribute than to let him skipper the side.
ADNAN AHMED looks a good prospect. What chance of a start with all our injuries problems and suspensions? Benny Boy, e-mail
Jacko says: I AGREE Adnan is a good prospect and it was nice for him to get a couple of minutes as a substitute against Morecambe.
Obviously our midfield three of Chris Brandon, Jon Worthington and Danny Schofield have been doing well and those, really, are the positions Adnan is challenging for.
At some stage, I have no doubt he will get a chance, but he will have to be patient, a bit like Lloyd at No3.
Adnan's attitude is excellent, though, he never shirks a tackle in training, which I like, and he's a real competitor who will go into the team at some stage and do really well.
WITH Efe Sodje and Danny Schofield sent off and Worthy booked for protests to a referee, leading him to be banned, do you think we need a change of attitude? Martin, Manchester
Jacko says: I don't think we need to change our attitude.
We have had two red cards, both for stupid actions by Efe and Danny, and they have been punished for that.
I do want to cut out that sort of thing, but I am never going to complain about the situation Jon Worthington was in.
Yes, he complained about the penalty at Bristol City, but so did 10 other players in blue and white.
If they hadn't complained I would have thought we needed to change our attitude because it was one of the worst refereeing decisions for a penalty that I've ever seen.
It was unbelievable and it definitely changed the game, because suddenly we were only a goal to the good and City then had the chance to equalise. Even though we were coming under pressure, I never thought we were going to concede until the penalty was awarded.
It was a very bad decision and players are bound to react to that.
They are humans, not robots and they get frustrated because they care passionately about what they are doing at this club.
I have no problems with that, it's just silly incidents I don't like. If someone is sent off for a bad tackle I can understand that, but not something like Efe or Danny did. We have to cut those out.
DO you envisage Abbott and Mendes playing together, or do they both need a target man? Garry Parker, e-mail
Jacko says: I MIGHT start with those two tomorrow, although I'm not going to reveal it here!
I don't see any problem with playing Junior and Pav together. They've both got pace and they are both decent in the air.
The reason I played both Mendes and Akpo Sodje in the LDV was to see who might slot in alongside Pav. John McAliskey also got on for that reason, so I've got three to choose from.
Pav is our No1 striker at the moment with his goals and it's just a matter of deciding who's best to partner him.
I was delighted for Junior to score his first goal against Morecambe and the reaction of the players showed they were as well.
Junior is a very popular lad at the club, but the whole bunch of them are a really nice group of people to work with. That's why we've got such tremendous team spirit, which shows through week after week on the pitch.
WHY don't you look round the Huddersfield leagues for any players? George Dawson, e-mail
Jacko says: WE always keep an eye on the local leagues and if any young players are coming through then our Academy director, Gerry Murphy, and his staff will know about them.
The chances of an older player showing they've got what it takes are more limited, although it can happen occasionally.
We've been lucky to drop on Akpo Sodje because his brother is at the club, although his background was in the pro game at QPR. Whether he can now establish himself with us is up to him.
We are in the process of expanding our scouting operation to make sure we take in more non-League football and Brian Young, who has taken over from Jeff Lee with scouting and reports on the opposition, is at the forefront of that.
WHY at Ashton Gate did you sub a forward with a forward when we were 3-1 up? Surely we could have strengthened midfield by bringing on Fowler? David, Huddersfield
Jacko says: THAT is something I definitely thought about.
At the time, though, I didn't want to lose our ability to hit Bristol City on the break, because we looked like scoring every time we went up field, so I opted to replace an injured Boothy with Akpo Sodje's pace.
The thought of shoring up midfield with Fowler as an option, although we would definitely have won the game in any case had it not been for that terrible penalty award against Nat Brown.
The decision on Fowler or Akpo was a toss-up and the coin might fall differently next time. That's not what cost us the game, though.
MATTHEW YOUNG looks good in the Reserves. Are you looking to bring him into the first team? Tracy Sanderson, West Yorkshire
Jacko says: MATTHEW was in the first-team squad last season against Scunthorpe at home and he was on standby for the LDV Vans Trophy tie this week.
He has done really well for us but I don't think he's quite ready yet to step straight into the first team.
The more Reserve games he gets and the more experience of being around the first-team squad, though, the better. He's another prospect coming through.
