'The Jones-effect' – Newcastle United fans laud Graeme Jones impact after transformed Magpies display at Everton

A win. Finally. Newcastle United secured all three points at Everton – but not only that, they were absolutely transformed.

And it is not getting past Newcastle United fans that a new coach added to the setup this week has had a MASSIVE impact...

@skullfist1 – “NUFC putting on a tactical masterclass. Hard to believe that's because of Bruce. He hasn't done that for 18 months.”

@StevenWade28 – “If the manager (by his own admission) doesn’t do tactics, it’s only fair to assume the following was down to Graeme Jones today: wide strikers, midfield diamond, overlapping full-backs, high press.”

Newcastle United's English head coach Steve Bruce reacts at the final whistle during the English Premier League football match between Everton and Newcastle United at Goodison Park in Liverpool, north west England on January 30, 2021.

@AdamQuinnin – “Graeme Jones black and white army!”

@RobLeadbeater13 – “That was almost a performance of a team that’s just had a new manager clearly Jones has had a massive input on that set up!”

@nufchowza1892 – “Just woke from a mad dream, watched the toon play away at Everton, we pressed them high, didn’t let them play, counter attacked with pace.”
