I have used the Official Editor to edit Bayern Munich into a monster. Here are my first eleven (in a 4-2-2-2 with wingers):

Iker Casillas (Goalkeeper, Defend)- GK [edited into 20 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Sergio Ramos (Full Back, Support) - RB [edited into 17 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Thiago Silva (Centre Back, Stopper) - CBL [edited into 20 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Nemanja Vidic (Limited Defender, Stopper) - CBR [edited into 20 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Phillip Lahm (Wing Back, Attack) - LB [edited into 18 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Xavi (Deep Lying Playmaker, Support) - CMR (Playmaker) [edited into 20 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Bastian Schweinsteiger (Deep Lying Playmaker, Support) - CML [edited into 20 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Cristiano Ronaldo (Inside Forward, Attack) - WR [edited into 20 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Andres Iniesta [retrained as WL] (Inside Forward, Attack) - WL [edited into 18 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Lionel Messi (Deep Lying Forward, Attack) - STL (Target Man) [edited into 20 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]
Falcao (Advanced Forward, Attack) - STR [edited into 21 years old with current ability and higher potential ability]

I had been using this lineup for two seasons now and they've not lost in the Bundesliga in my entire managerial career there, with less than 20 goals conceded each season. My touchline instructions are always 'Pump Ball Into Box' and 'Play Through Defense'.

Recently, I've stumbled upon a set of touchline instructions which was supposed to dominate opponents. The set tells us to 'Play Out of Defense', 'Push Higher Up', 'Pass Into Space', 'Play Through Defense', 'Work Ball Into Box' and 'Retain Possession'. It was great when I first used these instructions, demolishing Werder Bremen 9-0. Things have changed now.

I'm struggling with the players' condition due to the fast pace and older players like Frank Lampard (bought from Chelsea) went all the way down to 40% condition but he started with 100%. Although it unlocked the goal-scoring potential of Iniesta, Messi and Falcao's goals dried up, struggling to a lackluster 3-0 win against FC Basel of Switzerland (2 were penalties, 1 own goal). Casillas also conceded 12 goals in 10 matches recently, and my backup, Manuel Neuer, is worse off.

Any suggestions to change my starting lineup or tactics? I have the following players in my squad: Neuer, Rafinha, Vincent Kompany, Chiellini, Hummels, Baines, Alaba, Mkhitaryan, Fabregas, Lampard, Ribery, Gareth Bale, Eden Hazard, Robben, David Silva, Hamsik, Gundogan, Neymar, Cavani, Leandro Damiao, Mario Gomez, Jovetic, and De Rossi.

Thank you very much.
