One of the thing that I have realized is, as all players including MRLC / AMRLC and ST is marked at the opposition instructions, your players create spaces for the opposition. Therefore, if you are conceding a lot you may try to select "No specific instruction" for marking for aforementioned opposition players. It radically changed my game.

p.s. I mark only for central midfielders because my midfielders prevent opposition's quick attacks by standing close to them.

can you explain a bit more.....I've been trying lots of different tactics on fm 14 and I genuinely believe that the secret to winning is in oi and marking.

are you saying don't have specific marking instructions for attack players....St amc aml amr etc...?
sound like you mark the midfielders only?

The secret is being patient. Do not change your tactic anytime. At the and you will start to have good results. Lots of things affect having good results. Not only tactic. Play long time with same squad, Older and younger players together.Right players right positions. Have good captain. Players morale. Having good players. Your media handling. Player conversations. Training system. Good trainers.Trainers working together a long time. Giving players right instructions. Giving younger players great idol models. Little changes affect short term but not long term .

assume that opposition plays 4-2-3-1.

I mark only the 2 midfielders and do not select particular marking for 3 attacking midfielders and striker.

for instance, if the opposition plays with 4-4-2, i do not mark two strikers and two wingers on the midfield. yet, I prefer to mark two central midfielders. the reason that i prefer marking two central midfielders is, if my players loose the ball during the attack, handling with opposition wingers is more easy rather than midfielders. because, there are two players on the wingers (AML/R and Full Backs). somehow, at least they create pressure and gain some time to cover at back. Yet, if the opposition central midfielders beat any of my player on the midfield position, they will directly gain a chance. therefore, i prefer my central defenders to stand in a certain position rather than marking the opposition strikers.

also, i would like to remind that opposition instructions depends on the skills of the opposition. there is a theory from the past years of FM which seems still works (at least I had good results not in final result always but in terms of improving my defence)

for instance, if the opposition players lacks bravery (below 11) you can select hard tackling.

if the opposition player has high pace, dribbling, agility and balance (15 or above) you should select pressing for "never". because your players should react unflappable and if they are in rush, it may cause a lot of unnecessary fouls; or opposition easily beats your players.

if the opposition striker lacks "off the ball" you can select marking "tight" and if it is high you can select "never".

these are some of the instructions i use.

This tactic is weird. Some leagues, like the french leagues it does really well, and other leagues it's complete stink job like EPL. lol. I only have experience with this tactic playing smaller teams though on patch 14.3.1

Mind sharing the tactics? I think there is only 1 tactic these days.
