Have a rotation of tactics that directly suit all your players. This also helps in the case of injuries and suspensions. Try and give the team an extra morale boost when you're on a good run and lift them up when things look like they could fall apart. Find a good assistant and use him wisely, maybe even have him suggest a team for the next game (save your selection first) and then see how they contrast. Even try using mind games more in the media and praise individuals for good form.
The key however is tactics; don't necessarily have different tactics for different games, but make little changes like going to counter away from home and control/attack at home. There doesn't have to necessarily be outlandish tactics and changes but if things really aren't going your way then don't be afraid to give things a huge shuffle.
That's all I can suggest as these are usually techniques I use for my games. I struggled a lot on FM13 until very late on, but I've got right into the swing of FM14. Maybe it's just one of those adaptation things. I've found that this FM seems to have a heavy emphasis on continuous change and tinkering however. Hope this is helpful :)
