Training is fairly easy - just use overload attack and overload defence in 50/50 amounts until all the bars are over the dotted line, then fill in the gaps with skill training. I think I use 4/5 each of overload attack and defence.

If you want to be unstoppable, use Diablo which is 4 defenders, 1 DMC, 3 midfielders - ML, MR, MC. Run the MC all the way up between two strikers. Put the strikers and MC on "gung ho" mentality. Wingers on attacking, DMC and fullbacks on defensive, central defenders on ultra defensive. Get bored with winning all the time. Change to a less cheaty formation. I use a 4-4-2 with the MC running to AMC and the other MC moving across to the middle behind the attacking MC.

I tend to use different players all the time, it just depends on what you're looking for. Generally physical attributes > technical attribues > mental attributes but if you've been playing CM for a while, you should have a fair idea of what to look for in players anyway.
An it harm none, do as you will.
