I agree that the game feels a bit too simple. Have always liked to play the LLM and fight their way up in the series but in this version it is too simple. Took over Solihull Moors in the Conference North and won the league with over 10 points. When I season after they won five first matches in the Conference with basically the same starting eleven I lost the joy of playing .
Right now, I tried to start a save with Farnborough in the Conference South and mid- season, so I lead the league easily.
And no, I'm no genius in tactics or so.
So yes, the game is too easy as it is now.
