The Bees slumped to a fourth loss in six matches after Francois Zoko's double cancelled out Clayton Donaldson's opener.

And McCormack felt Boro turned the game into a battle - one which he admitted Brentford lost.

"It was a frustrating game," he told the Bees' website.

"We started very well, the mistake for the goal knocked the stuffing out of us and we lost our way.

"We conceded another goal, they got the run of it and they turned it into a battle. We didn't cope too well with it.

"We tried to play football against a team that wanted to beat us up; they coped better with it than we did."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
