    Angry Need a new formation!

    For the last couple of seasons I've started drawing and losing matches against weaker opposition and I am sick of it. I'm guessing the problem is my formation but I'm not sure how to fix it. I train my squad every morning to reach the 10% bonus and morale is always at maximum but my team is playing poor, especially bad in FA matches which is getting embarrassing.

    This is my current team

    I want to change it but have no idea what the best option is. I was thinking about changing the ML/MR into 2 MCs and the 1 of the AMCs to a ST (narrow 4-1-2-2-1) but I've found ST and MC players the most expensive to sign in auctions despite only helping with the training bonus for 1 training section each.
    Another option is to only turn an AMC into ST (wide 4-1-2-1-2) but I feel the poor performances won't be fixed by moving 1 player.

    I really need to fix this somehow because I spend way too much time on this game every day to be playing so poorly. I always get promoted but I should've won the league and it looks like I'm going to finish 3-4th despite having the strongest 11. I have 162 tokens and 1.6B to spend so i can sign a few players next season but I've put off changing formations for awhile now because I can usually only sign 3 or 4 new players each season that actually improve my XI and it's not worth spending 40 tokens on a player who will sit on the bench.

    4-2-3w-1^^

    Despite all, "one can win a treble with any formation and the correct players" so, "maybe" a change of formation will not be enough. Good luck.

    Is that 4-2-3-1 with MC or DMCs? I like the idea with MC's but assumed the defence would need 1 defensive midfielder as protection.

    I just assumed the formation is the problem because the players quality is higher than most of the teams I play against. I need to train or buy corner and penalty specialists. My tactics are pretty standard. Mentality is attacking and pressing his hard though so I'll change mentality to normal in case it is leaving my team too open.

    you don't really need DMC if opponent don't use AMC,

    play with one MC only never be easy, you may lose to weaker team also because you will always lost midfield battle and difficult to create a chance for scoring.

    so i suggest to you to have 2 MC or more and no need to use too much AMC, one AMC is enough if you really want to use it

    The problem is you play the same formation. It looks like you don't even consider switching from 4-2-3w-1 to 3w-1-2-3w-1 if needed. I don't think with "I-play-this-formation-only" attitude you can get far. If you want to play like that, choose something universal, at least. Old good 4-5-1V, for example.

    What quality do you have at the end of the season?
    Do you know about fast-trainers? Do you buy them?
    What is your play style: token buying, farming, or casual?
