The Greatest Newcastle United Ever...pity the tactics!

Hey guys,
I have played my first season of FM 13 and was very successful with my transfers and management. This is the first time I have got to season 2. I have lost a fair bit of staff and don't really know how I should be playing with this squad. I need help with formations, tactics and player positions.

In the first season, I pretty much just bought Zaha, Razak and Jenas. Then in january I bought Sturridge. They pretty much all just fit into the squad as subs then starters. With this new squad, Im not certain on tactics (passing style, positioning, whether they should attack support or defend etc) as there are a fair few heavy hitters I am relying on for performance. Last season Ba and Cisse just did it for me.

Please help me if you can!

Pranav is my squad
Wow... what a squad. And in the second season, unbelievable. Most tactics should work with that!
Nice squad, just having Lewandowski in Newcastle is great
passing style: shorter
creative freedom: default
closing down: press more
tackling: default
marking: zonal marking
crossing: default
roaming: more roaming

they are my tactics they help me pass the ball around nicely just like barcelona brilliant how they reacted right away, first game of the season beat stoke 5-2 cisse scored 3 cabaye scored 1 and new signing seydoue doumbia (i had to sell a lot to get him) scored 1. this is with the new summer update off of this website on downloads.
