'Statue in 10 years' time': Newcastle fans blown away by Callum Wilson at Palace

Newcastle came away with a point from Crystal Palace today as Callum Wilson scored to ensure Graeme Jones came away with something in his first game in charge.

After a topsy-turvy week, all eyes were on Jones and the Newcastle players at Palace. But things threatened to come unstuck completely, as Christian Benteke scored to leave that all too familiar feeling among the Toon Army.
