Not sure if Lampard staying would be a sure thing, I think Everton would have a crack at luring Rooney from Derby again. It would suit Rooney's managerial career path better now that we'll be in the championship. Get Everton back into the PL, stay a few years to settle the ship and then off to United.
I just hope we keep Gordon & Gray, both young and full of talent that can win games alone. Get rid of the dead wastes and bring in some hard working top-tier Championship footballers.
I think Pickford/DCL/Richy/Allan/Doucoure will all go. Likely Keane gets sold (Hopefully), Coleman will stay, Holgate I'm not so sure but he strikes me as the type to force a move. Godfrey not sure but he'd be a nice one to keep. Iwobi would struggle to find another club, would be handy in the Championship if he stays but he's on good coin I believe.
Squad aside, the board & club owners need sorting out as well. It's going to be a whirlwind few years for Everton but maybe what the club needs to re-find itself.
This is the other benefit of a relegation, clean out the dead wood much quicker and more effectively than you would by staying up in 17th.
