Big no to Patterson, Cameron, Ingham and slightly smaller no to Brotherton. Overage I'd go for the big 3 - Reid (Smith had a dismal season and looks far shakier than ever before), Thomas and Wood. Here's what I'd go with using Schmid's formation and assuming the youngsters develop alright:

                                                                                           Woud

                                                                Sinclair   Zwetsloot   Reid   McGarry

                                                                                         Thomas                        

                                                                                   Singh      Lewis

                                                                    McCowatt                      Rogerson

                                                                                           Wood

Bench: Tzanev, Brown, Spain/Ingham, Brotherton, Pijnaker (or another decent CB), Cacace, Elliot, Bell, Ebbinge, Just, Bevan, de Jong

Standby: Dyer, Patterson, L. Wood, Wilkins, Conroy

Mixing the old crop of youngsters with the new one. We can afford to blood a few youngsters and not lose, so why not give Schmid a chance to build for the future instead of being stuck with Hudson's used and abused crew

To sunseeker and metallegs.  When has being at a club been a prerequisite for NZ football teams? We've been to worldcups with part timers. How quickly you forget.

To Mrsmillgans and fellow arrogant suggesters of overage players. Put it away. Honiara anyone. We have to get through qualifying in the islands first. 

Ps. It's the road to 2020 Olympics. Not the Olywhites squad. Under 23 suggestions thanks.

Wow angry pants... its prob more of a running joke about how we often have guys selected who play for Unattached FC... Although it was suggested at how ready, match fit, players would be if they are not actually with a club and playing regularly at a decent level. Think that is often why the question is raised. Plunder in the 2014 quilifers is probably the prime example of that coming in from some US state league.

Surely Cacace has LB nailed down. He's playing very well, especially given he's still at school.  Hope the Nix have a price tag on his head, the same goes for Singh.

As contracted professionals, Phoenix own their contracts and can demand whatever to break that.

FFA fly in the face of that and say there can be no fee demanded for transfers between A-League clubs. To date no club has seriously challenged that legally.

If they were youth academy players Phoenix would be entitled to a 'development fee' under FIFA rules. This still actually applies even though they are on pro contracts since they are U23. Phoenix would have to stand up to FFA to enforce that. Becomes a moot point when independent A-League as will likely allow transfer fees, so then it is up to Phoenix to manage contracts to ensure a sale value, with the risk they end up stuck with a payer they don't want. 

European clubs (and the players' agents) are generally clever enough to wait until the last six months of a young A-League player's contract because they know everyone on this side of the world wants to make it over there and it's not going to be too hard to match or beat the wages on offer. Based on precedent, the Nix aren't likely to see much, if anything for those two upfront. They will have to hope for solidarity payments on potential later transfers. (Only about 5 NZ players have ever moved for a fee though).

Danny Hay (Perth to Leeds for 200k)

Declan Edge (Gisborne to Notts County, there was a small fee which is why Notts County held on to his registration when he came back, Eddie settled it for him in the end)

Winston Reid went to West Ham for 4 million but that was from Denmark so doesn't really count

Chris Killen, Rory Fallon, Ryan Nelsen and Chris Wood all received fees once they were in the UK
