So, I'm managing Basel, nice club, sleeping local giant. I'm trying to winning the league in three or four seasons. I don't think this game or fm23 or any fm is "too easy" because i don't like using match engine breaker tactics and buying cheap and crazy wonderkids from nowhere. I'm using my scouts, i'm watching matches and noting players and always looking up other leagues player stats. 

Anyway, that's not the point. Mind is superior to reason. I see this place as a WhatsApp group for coaches, we know they discuss tactical stuff. I think i need to improve my defensive play. 

First problem is, I give my opponent too many chances. Maybe this is because of my group of players, maybe it is my tactical approach. But c'mon, I have eleven men who can walk. So, i think the problem starts with me and my tactic. What do you think is the problem? 

Second problem, I'm having trouble keeping score. Match endings turn into hell. Pressure, pressure, pressure... I know i'm not managing an elite team but i think i don't need man. city for this, last match my opponent is non league Rapperswill. This pushed me to take responsibility. Rapperswil dominated us in the match ending. So, this is a huge problem.

I'm adding my tactic and my players. What do you think is the problem guys? Help me, your advices are too important for me. I hope I was able to explain my situation clearly. If you have any questions, I'm here to answer them. Last but not least, if you have any advice for attacking, these are not taxi doors, i'm all ears, i'm listening.

Last little note: I know playing with target forward and using low crosses a little bit weird but gauto is very short and dubasin isn't good in aerial duels. and i think players tend to be sending high balls to target forwards, so that's a minor problem i think. but i'll welcome any advices for this also.
