It will be a case of One Direction as far as Sale Sharks are concerned when they launch the new Aviva Premiership campaign in early September.
Twelve months ago a summer of high expectation swiftly evaporated in the face of the Sharks' worst-ever start to a season, as they lost their first seven league outings, condemning the club to a traumatic battle to avoid relegation.
A year on from that grim ordeal, director of rugby Steve Diamond believes brutal lessons have both been learned and digested - and that clarity of purpose will be the order of the day.
And he revealed that he is confident his side won't have to revisit such traumas again when battle recommences away at Gloucester on September 7.
"We've got a lot more rugby going on so far this pre-season compared to 12 months ago," Diamond revealed.
"The team didn't effectively know its direction at the start of last season, so we've addressed that and we've had a thorough, honest review of the campaign both with the staff, with the players and the owners.
"But looking forward, the players all genuinely feel that we can push for a place in the top six next season.
"We've also put a lot more emphasis on our defence with Mike Forshaw coming on board from Connacht this summer as our new defence coach and he has settled in brilliantly.
"He's working well both with Brush (head coach Bryan Redpath) and with Pete Anglesea (academy transition coach) and everyone knows that their roles are clearly defined now.
"Everyone's looking forward to September and as well as a big emphasis on the league, there will be another major push once again on the LV Cup, which we reached the final of last season and was a real high point."
Though virtually all of his players are back in situ, Diamond is also still actively working to further enhance his squad with one more key signing - an international number eight - almost over the line and plans also well down the road in regards to bringing in both a kicking specialist and further member of the coaching staff.
"We've got a number eight virtually signed but he's playing in the Southern Hemisphere at the moment and so won't be arriving until around October/November time," Diamond revealed.
"Injury-wise, our Irish prop Tony Buckley fractured his leg at the end of last season but he will be ready for not far off the start of the season.
"Overall, the pack is getting there in terms of where we want it to be.
"We've brought in Kirill Kulemin, Jonathan Mills and Michael Paterson amongst others over the summer. The Fridge (Welsh international prop Eifion Lewis-Roberts) is well on the mend after surgery on his shoulder, we've got Henry Thomas coming back from his tour to Argentina with England while guys like Tommy Taylor and Marc Jones have come back flying."
