I am Middlesbrough FC in the first season. It is the 1st of December and i am 14th. I play with a 4-1-3-2 formation. this is my first team. Steele, Hoyte, Woodgate, Tomkins, Marcos Alonso, Rhys Williams, Kerim Frei, Felipe Anderson, Wellington Nem, Charlie Austin, Rickie Lambert. Why am I losing??
Could be your tactics, your players, injuries, morale, training, or anything else. You'll need to give us a little more information for us to be able to help.
How much of an effect is the team morale?
Try changing your tactic first, that is one of the most likely problems, but more information is needed.
Any sort of tactic recommended?
At the risk of being rude... and flippant... maybe you are losing because you are Middlesbrough?

Ok, seriously though, it is likely to be your tactic not fitting your players or their orders. Look at your players, their preferred playing positions and roles and build the tactic around them. We could suggest tactics till the cows come home but without seeing your squad and all the information that goes along with them it would just be wasted breath typing.

For example:
Try 4-2-2-2, 4-5-1, 5-4-1, 4-1-2-1-2... one of them might work.

But by looking at your teams strengths and more importantly, it's weaknesses, you can customise any tactic to be a winning one. It just takes time i'm afraid, no quick fix here.

...or you could google 'football manager 2013 middlesbrough winning tactic' and see what you get? :)

Good luck and feel free to ask if you need any further help.
how about not using the modern tactics like 4-2-3-1 , 4-4-2 , 4-3-2-1 and 4-2-4 . and actually make your own formation that suits they style u want to play. ive created my very own 2-3-2-2-1 and adjusted all player instructions to my likings. sometimes it just takes that extra bit of effort
