need some advice here.

So I decided with my Everton team, to build the greatest defense ever.
I picked up a bunch of players who in theory, should be good, however I'm disappointed.

first I picked up RULLI at goaltender, who has actually been pretty good.

Ryan Shawcross
Eder Alvarez Balanta
Ezequiel Munoz

In addition to
Jagielka, stones, Coleman, and Baines.

That should make my back 4 absolutely solid.

Additionally, I picked up (as Ball winners)

Lucas Romero
Gastonia Gil Romero
M. Kranevitter

I'm wondering if it's just going to take some time for these guys to grow up and get better, but at present a lot of them are making more mistakes than interceptions which makes me use the "aggressive" feedback after matches!

granted, it has only been five matches but seriously, 30 mistakes in five matches? that is incredibly bad. I have several players with that statistic.

Shawcross and Munoz seems to be the best of the newcomers but the others are making really stupid mistakes. Sometimes I speak to them, and criticize that they are making too many mistakes and they say, "I'm not making any more mistakes than anyone else" which is rather hilarious.

I am using control/structured with very few shouts other than play from defense, play narrower, stay on feet, higher tempo.
any thoughts? Suggestions on how to cut down on mistakes?
Balanta is absolute quality, good choice!
