Crystal Palace are back in the Premier League for the first time since being relegated for a record fourth time in 2005. And to announce the club's return, supporters put together a display before their season opener against Spurs featuring the Jigsaw dummy from the Saw films. "Palace are here, let the games begin," the banners read.
And if invoking a message from a horror series wasn't enough to strike fear into their new Premier League foes, they also have Kayla, their live bald eagle mascot.
Despite all this (and the cheerleaders), Spurs still eked out a 1-0 win even without Gareth Bale thanks a 50th minute penalty from new striker Roberto Soldado. Maybe for their next home match, they'll take the Saw theme to the next level and set traps in the visitors' dressing room.
