Sam Allardyce critical of Christian Benteke’s penalty miss post-Watford 1 – Crystal Palace 1 (Video)

Big Sam returns with a draw

Big Sam Allardyce returned to English footballing action with a draw today, as his new side Crystal Palace tied 1-1 at Watford.

Allaryce was appointed as Palace manager only a few days ago following the sacking of Alan Pardew, and didn’t have much time to prepare for this game.

But after the ignominy of his England sacking, Big Sam just looks glad to be back in management.

Laments Benteke’s decision making

However, he was disappointed with Christian Benteke’s penalty today.

Palace could have won had the Belgian striker scored from the spot, and Big Sam believes that Benteke should have went the other side, as he’d put his previous two penalties to the goalkeeper’s left.
