Lampard has to be out of the question because of the blue blood running in his veins. Also there is a risk that his first action would be to spend big on signing RLC.

Surely, Frank cannot be considered... He took derby from 6th to 6th (despite having the likes of premier league quality on loan, such as Mount). He failed miserably at Chelsea this season, whilst tuchel comes in and wins the champions league with the same ‘failing’ Chelsea team!

Howes relegation was purely caused by a small squad with shiteloads of injuries. I think he'd be a definite improvement

In 2018-19, Bournemouth lost £32m and Fulham lost £20m, why would he be an upgrade. Eddie Howe overspends and cannot control a budget. He was given this budget to avoid being relegated and choose to have a small squad, then didn´t anticipate injuries causing the squad to be decimated and relegated. Fans love quality over quantity and they don´t like spending money on unused players, but it's poorly planning.

A Howe has done well with Fulham - Ernie, at cb in the 70's, who was in the Cup Final squad, and later lined up alongside George Best and Rodney Marsh.

Not sure about Eddie as our manager.
