I'm using the training presets you suggested and half of my squad is unhappy with training - "thinks his training unit is not getting enough attention". Are you sure this can be ignored? I worry this might affect performances.
Strong teams tactic only unfortunately. I tested with my 2nd season Alaves which was in the middle of the BBVA table after 25 games, and I was demolished by opposition sinking towards the relegation zone quick. The defence was beaten too easily even by average teams. You need a very strong defence and midfield to use this tactic. I wouldn't recommend it. The tactic was trained to fluid before I switched to it.
