Managing Everton in  FM21 Touch and European qualification is a must in the first season, which I think is quite a tough ask. I've been playing 433 with a deep defensive mid using the geggenpressing default tactic, with pass into space removed and the LOE pulled back one notch.

We seem to compete well based on match stats, but lose to teams that have a couple of shots on target. Has anyone else had any success with this or any other tactic with this team, or am I getting it completely wrong ?

Not sure if such an aggressive gung-ho style like gegenpress is the best idea when managing Everton, which is a good team, but still not a top one.

What about other instructions? Tempo, for example. If I remember correctly, it is set to extremely high for the gegenpress preset, right? 

Anyway, if you insist on playing a gegenpress-like style, I am probably not the right person to help you on that specific part, simply because I never play overly aggressive tactical styles.

Where I can offer some advice is about how to make the setup of roles and duties - which is the most important part of any tactic - better balanced. So here are tweaks I would suggest on that score:

I'm willing to try other tactics, I've played a season with a fluid counter attack style but, that was even less successful. Is there a style you suggest ?

The tempo was turned down a little from preset.

I've noticed 90% of my goals came from the centre forward and the inside forward. So, if they didn't score I lost. I had considered a BWM but, don't have many options apart from Delph but, he's regularly injured.

Whatever style you eventually pick, I would advise against using preset tactics, because they are full of overkill and therefore require a lot of tweaking (in most cases). Instead, better create a tactic from scratch with just a couple basic instructions for starters. Keep it as simple as possible and only make small gradual tweaks if/when necessary. And remember - the most important thing is how you set up the roles and duties. If that area of the tactic is unbalanced and/or illogically designed, the rest is irrelevant.

OK, I will attempt the method you suggest and build a tactic from scratch, keeping it simple and build from there. Thank you
