Phew, deep breath!
What do these sixty-one men have in common? That's right - they have all turned out for Ross County since the beginning of the 2012/13 season, their first in the Scottish Premiership.
That's twenty-six months. Sixty-one players in twenty-six months!
Two of those players, Jonathan Bateson and Kurtis Byrne, only made a single League Cup appearance each. So actually 'only' fifty-nine of these guys have played in the Premiership. When recent arrival Martin Woods makes his debut, he'll have the dubious honour of being number sixty.
Make no bones about it, that's a shocking statistic. Add in the fact that only two of them - Tony Dingwall and Steven Ross - have actually come through County's youth system, and it's even more shocking. The constant chopping and changing, and the lack of a settled team, is the primary reason why they are in their current predicament at the bottom of the league.
Ironically, their promotion was won in the first place by a strong, settled group. Only three of that pre-summer 2012 bunch are left - Scott Boyd, Richard Brittain and Rocco Quinn.
Having got into this mess because of short-termism, they have no choice but to try to escape via the same route. Since his appointment at the start of last month, Jim McIntyre has hit the free agent market like a kleptomaniac in Tesco. Woods is his fifth signing, following Lewis Toshney, Terry Dunfield, Jamie Reckord, and Paul Quinn. His chairman, Roy McGregor brought in three other new faces just prior to his appointment - Darren Barr, Jackson Irvine and Michael Gardyne.
Thank goodness for McGregor's generosity, or McIntyre would have had to make do with the duds that he was left by his predecessor. Derek Adams had signed eleven players himself in the summer, but it looks like plenty of them will be discarded like XXL boxer shorts at the end of a Fat Camp. It's quite possible that we'll not see the likes of Uros Celcer, Tim Dreesen or the utterly horrific Jim Fenlon (players who all started their opening match of the campaign) again. After all, McIntyre has an enormous squad now at his disposal - twenty-six players who have passed their twenty-first birthday, more than either Rangers or Celtic! It seems unlikely that County still have the lowest wage budget in the top flight.
So their survival may rest on how quickly the new manager can work out what his strongest eleven is. And on how quickly the players learn each other's names. And if he can pull it off, he then needs to keep them together, so that this fiasco doesn't happen again.
