Here’s why Big Sam is raging about the Watford Mascot

The Premier League return of Sam Allardyce was never going to go off without incident

The Premier League return of Sam Allardyce was never going to go off without incident. Big Sam managed to open his account as Crystal Palace manager, by gaining one point at Vicarage Road, with a 1-1 draw.

However, it was events post game that angered the former England manager. He was maddened by the actions of the Watford mascot, of all people. After the final whistle ‘Harry the Hornet’ went straight over to Zaha and threw himself on the ground, simulating a dive which Zaha had been accused of doing during the match.

Both player and manager were incensed with Harry’s carry on and reacted accordingly.

 

Unfortunately the cameras at the ground didn’t manage to properly catch the incident.
