A man who broke a 75-year-old woman's jaw in an unprovoked attack in West Ham laughed as he left her lying in the street.
Allardyce steered the club to 13th place in the Premier League, but came in for criticism for the way the team played.
If last week's Tube strike wasn't bad enough, this time we've got floods and thousands of travelling football fans too.
Though West Ham are currently in twelfth place, they've only won twice in their last eight Premier League matches. A win for Sam Allardyce's team, may help silence some of the Hammers fans who've been disgruntled with him for most of this season.
Sam Allardyce says "underachieving" West Ham will need to evolve if the club are to "move onto the next level" next season.
The east London side finished 10th in their first season back in the Premier League but have struggled for long periods this term.
Speaking ahead of Saturday's trip to West Brom, Allardyce said: "Last season was an over achievement and I think this season has been an under achievement up to now.
"The players and I are always learning and always know that we have to try to develop the team and move onto the next level. To change, but not change too much.
"You have to get value for money and quality players that are better than you have already got, that is just the process of this business if you want to improve and get better."

Incredibly sad to hear the news about Dylan Tombides. He was always so positive despite his illness. All my thoughts are with his family. dg
Dylan Tombides, who has died aged 20, was a "larger than life character" who was "respected by everyone who knew him", West Ham United said in a statement.
The striker had been battling testicular cancer for nearly three years.
A club statement said:
"Dylan's amazing resilience and positivity saw him through months of surgery and chemotherapy, while his outstanding talent saw him make his first-team debut in a League Cup tie with Wigan Athletic at the Boleyn Ground in September 2012.
Away from the pitch, Dylan did a huge amount of work to raise awareness of male cancer, supporting the One for the Boys campaign at a number of high-profile events alongside the likes of Hollywood star Samuel L. Jackson, snooker star Jimmy White and fellow Australian Peter Andre.

Dylan was respected by everyone who knew him for his intelligent views on the game and his larger than life character. He was a loving son, amazing brother and well-respected member of the West Ham squad. He will be hugely missed by everyone who had the honour of knowing him."

Arsene Wenger said he hopes Everton slip up in the race for Champions League football next season.
Two goals from Lukas Podolski and a wonder strike from Olivier Giroud helped Arsenal beat West Ham 3-1 and move back above Everton into the Champions League places, but the Blues have a game in hand on their rivals.
"We know we have to win our games and hope that Everton will slip up somewhere. Let's focus on our job and not look too much at Everton," Wenger said.
"If we need that we'll see when we need it, but at the moment we can only do it if we win our games, so let's focus on that."
Arsenal have moved back ahead of Everton in the race for fourth place in the Premiership. Two goals from Lucas Podolski helped Arsenal come back from a goal down to beat West Ham 3-1 at the Emirates.
West Ham took the lead in the 40th minute through Matt Jarvis but two from Podolski and another goal for Olivier Giroud ensured all three points for the Gunners.
Defeat leaves West Ham in 11th place, seven points clear of the relegation. Everton can leapfrog ahead of Arsenal again if they beat Crystal Palace tomorrow night.
