How do people get good at the game?

I've been playing football manager for 8 years, since 08, although maybe not religously between about 11-14

And I am fucking dire (Am I allowed to swear?)

In pretty much every save I've ever done, I get sacked. Lets say I take over Liverpool, I buy good players, I set up respectable tactics, I have a nice pre-season. Then it gets into the games, and 10 league games in im in 16th position, having won 2 games. The teams tactic is fluid etc, just whatever I do in ANY save, and im talking probably 30+ over the years, it goes abysmally.

To give you some insight, im currently in an online career with 2 of my mates, and we gave each other large budgets to basically build dream teams. and this is the team I have as manager of liverpool
Cavani ST CF
Lacazette RW IF
Reus LW IF
Draxler CAM AM
Gundogan LCM CMA
R.Rodriguez LB FBA
Manolas CB CD
I. Martinez CB CD
Clyne RB FBA
Rulli GK

I understand the team cohesion may not be great, but I have managed for over a season now so it shouldnt be too bad.
Im 9 games in to the second season, without a win.
I just basically want to know how on earth im meant to get better at the game, ive been playing since FM08 for fuck sake, surely by now I should be able to be succesful?
