Which player did you initially not rate but then grew to love?

When we lost the great McFarland for a season and were going to be stuck with a reserve who'd been with the club a decade but hardly ever played, I was devastated and extremely sceptical. Yet with this fella playing in central defence, we won the league!

How brilliant Peter Daniel turned out to be that season.

David Nish, signed for big money from Leicester. He was poor for 6 months, then became one of the best players in the top division, played quite a few games for England. Same years later with Chris Powell, underwhelming for 6 months, got better and better, and played for England after we’d let him go

Thought Shefki Kuqi was a complete waste of a loan but for the dozen matches he played for us he was a perfect fit for the system we were playing at the time.

Paul Dickov was a lot better than I thought he was.

I wouldn't have remembered these two but yeah, I'm stealing these answers
