It’s safe to say Big Sam had seen enough of his West Brom side during their defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.
The Baggies boss literally took matters into his own hands in added time as he brilliantly pretended to take a throw-in in the dying embers of the match.
Allardyce also practised his headers earlier in the match as he hilariously nodded the ball back onto the pitch in the 40th minute.
Despite his jokey antics, West Brom remain in a precarious position following the defeat in north London.
His side remain in 19th position in the league standings and three points off 18th placed Fulham, having played a game more.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1358413200774070276&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Ftalksport.com%2Ffootball%2F830639%2Fsam-allardyce-heads-ball-west-brom-defeat-tottenahm%2F&siteScreenName=talkSPORT&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px

In the match, Harry Kane once again highlighted his importance to Spurs.
Kane had missed the last two and a half games after coming off with an ankle injury at half-time against Liverpool and things could hardly have gone worse for Jose Mourinho’s men in that time as they were beaten in all three to lose ground in the race for the top four.
But the England captain made a quickfire return and put Spurs on their way against the Baggies with his 13th Premier League goal of the season, with Son Heung-min also finding the net in a much-needed win.
It is no surprise that the trusted duo of Kane and Son were the men to step up as between them they have scored 26 of their side’s 36 league goals this season and it was timely too, as it helps Spurs get back on track ahead of a big week with an FA Cup fifth round tie at Everton preceding a trip to Manchester City next weekend.
West Brom had drawn at City and Liverpool but were always hanging on here and their fight against relegation is looking a forlorn one, sitting 11 points from safety.
