Team line up is like this

4,2,3,1

GK (SW, A),
DL (WB A)
DCL (CB D)
DCR (BPD D)
DR (WB S)
MCL (DLP, S)
MCR (BBM, S)
AMR (IF A)
AMC (AP S)
AML (IF S)
S (PF A)

Any ideas, I don't understand. I am losing to teams that I really shouldn't be. But I just can't stop conceding.

Your tactical style is irrelevant if you don't have the players to best utilize it
Would need more details to offer any meaningful advice. Who are the players occupying these positions? Are you using the standard Tiki Taka tactic without any changes or individual adjustments to player instructions? There's a lot that be the cause of a certain tactic not working for you.

My most recent save I thought my players suited a high pressure Gegenpress style of football, but after struggling to start the season I transitioned to a more cautious counter-attacking approach and we've improved dramatically. I still use the Gegenpress, but in late games where we're tied or trailing and want to get something going, but my players couldn't perform at that intensity for the whole game. Tiki Taka is a similarly demanding tactic.
I'm thinking that's partially the problem, I'm playing with Swansea and while i actually thought I had a good enough team to play this tactic, I don't think I do so I'm getting a lot of possession and a LOT of shots on goal but getting done on the counter attack every time. Perhaps it is that I just need really good players to play this tactic and need to do something a bit more dramatic. Thing is, I could have sworn the old Swansea used to play that way. I would use Bournemouth as an example too but they are sucking at the moment.
Drop the 'line of engagement' down a notch or two.
