Sam Allardyce Blasts Watford's Mascot For Taking The Piss Out Of Zaha
BIG SAM IS BACK!
The 'former' England manager returned to a Premier League dug-out earlier this afternoon following his sacking from the national job.
But Allardyce didn't have it all his way despite taking the lead. Yohann Cabaye put Crystal Palace in front and then they had the chance to double it.
Until Christian Benteke fluffed his lines from the spot-kick, tamely passing the ball to Heurelho Gomes.
Before Troy Deeney bagged a landmark goal while showing his counterpart on how to take a pen by blasting it straight down the middle with the game eventually finishing 1-1.
Though not without controversy. It appeared Palace winger Zaha was in line to win their second and the game's third PK-kick (sorry - Bob Bradley is spreading on us) but Mark Clattenburg refused to blow.
Instead, booking Zaha. Needless to say, Allardyce was unforgiving in his post-match interview lambasting the refs decision.
What's more, 'Big Sam' then turned his attention to Watford's mascot; 'Harry The Hornet.'
'Harry' did his best Zaha impression following the conclusion of the game by diving right in front of him, clearly imitating and mocking him.

Ah, he's back!
