I guess it is a good idea, but not for actually improving the squad, as players usually recommend one of their favored people, not necessarily good players.

However, it's great for building relationships, sometimes resulting with the player immediately listing you as favored personnel.

I'd suggest when asking to ask for a youngster, as they are cheaper and easier to sign, while the benefit with the player is the same.

Most of my experiences have been positive but one time I had a player tell me that it wasn't his job to be recommending players and he became quite mad at me for a while. I mean he never asked to be transfer listed or anything but his morale dropped for a bit.

Usually if you sign a player recommended by one of your players, you will become one of his favourites

I didn't sign the player which was recommended by striker, and he asked to be transfer listed :/

I have tested this out maybe two dozen times. Every time, unless they can't think of anybody suitable, they recommend a **** player.
