As far as Andrew Johnson is concerned Fulham's watershed was the crushing 4-1 home defeat to Manchester City.
The back-in-form striker who made his fifth start in nearly a year and by far his best in the 2-0 home canter over Stoke on Saturday - reckoned things have been on the up for him and the Whites since boss Mark Hughes ripped into the team following the City mauling.
Johnson also revealed the manager's stamp is slowly but surely making its mark on an upwardly mobile club.
He said: "We had a bit of a bad time against Man City - but we have worked on it.
"The new manager has his own theories and he's changed how I play a little bit - but you know those sort of things are going to happen. It was never going to be the same as it was under Roy Hodgson."
