what are your individual instructions like? do you have like a deep lying playmaker like scholes/carrick who actually control the tempo?

I agree.
also because it's such a radical tactic you're making it will take time for the team to get into it. make sure your match preperation is training this tactic, put it on high intensity, and set to team blend. you'll see results sure, I'm certain.

Also, what formation were they playing against you and what formation was you using? Thats another factor which could have affected the outcome.
