Tim Ream is ready to use last year's play-off heartbreak as motivation this time around.
The American defender is back in training with his Fulham team-mates this week, starting their pre-season campaign off in Poland.
And the 29-year-old wants to put the pain of last season behind him.
He told fulhamfctv: "There is a little bit of a different feeling this year, it's a feeling of what could have been but it's also motivation to start the year right and really go for it and get poromoted.
"I thought about what could have been, but there wasn't much time for me to dwell on it, fortunately and unfortunately and I was right back on the horse.
"It's nice being back with the guys. It's great to be out here, with the team again, working towards a better finish than last year."
And Ream believes with the squad they have already got, and a few more potential additions, the Whites can make up for last season.
He added: "It's a different vibe in the camp and in the group, with the fans and supporters as well, you could feel something building last year and we have to continue to foster that feeling and push forward and hopefully do some bigger and better things this year."
