    Fans of the game can’t get enough of it. And if you’re a
    novice entering the world of football for the first
    time Cheap Jerseys , fair
    warning:football statistics are a must-know because every single discussion
    about the sport will involve them at some level or other. It is absolutely
    essential therefore, to know what they are and e up to date with the news. Don’t
    worry if it sounds intimidating; chances are you’ll get so hooked, you’ll have
    all the important football stats on your fingertips at any given time.
    To
    start off, here are outlined the major types of football stats that are bound to
    come handy over your career as a football fan.
    Play by play stats
    The play
    by play stats are the simplest kind of football stats that you will come across.
    This is a category of stats that includes almost everything that is standard
    with the sport.Records of everything from things such as
    yards Wholesale
    AC Milan Jersey
    , receptions, interceptions to things like carries, sacks,
    fumbles Wholesale
    Arsenal Jersey
    , touchdowns and passes, this category of stats also
    include defensive stats, though officially not accepted. This includes stats
    relating to tackles, pass targets as well as quarterback hits. Individual
    defence stats
    too Wholesale
    AS Roma Jersey
    , count as play by play stats. And finally, included in
    play by play stats are the average stats, which give a better idea of the
    overall performance through a season, or through the
    years Wholesale
    Atletico Madrid Jersey
    , as compared to just the raw numbers. Examples
    could be yards per carry, touchdown to interception ratio and percentage of
    completion amongst others.
    Game charting stats
    The numbers that can be got
    off from volunteers who watch the taped game and mark whatever cannot be
    recorded through the play by play strategy are called game charting stats. There
    are hundreds of such volunteers scattered across the internet analysing and
    recording these, so the sources of information for game charting football stats
    are plenty in number and availability. The only issue associated with this form
    of football stats is that there is a lot of scope for mistakes. Why? For the
    simple reason that there are limitations presented by the few camera angles
    through which the game is conveyed to the volunteers and hence, the numbers
    noted.
    Historical stats
    One can easily argue that historical stats in
    football are just the same as play by play stats. And
    yes Wholesale
    Chelsea Jersey
    , these stats involve recording information of the same
    categories as play by play stats; that is, it recording all the standard things
    about the sport. This includes yards, receptions,
    interceptions Wholesale
    Barcelona Jersey
    , carries, sacks, fumbles,
    touchdowns Wholesale
    Bayern Munich Jersey
    , passes, etc. the only difference between them is
    that the recordings go back over years and take averages over a longer period of
    time as compared to regular play by play stats.
    Projections
    As suggested
    by the name, this is a form of using stats in football to predict what might
    happen in the future of the game. Performances of individual players as well as
    of the whole team together are roughly predicted using football stats.

    NAIROBI, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- Before the Kenyan government mooted plans to
    expand Thika Road in 2009, commuters would waste hours on traffic gridlock.



    Many commuters wished for the day the road would be traffic jam-free so that
    they would cut down on time and fuel.



    Since completion of the 50km highway that links Nairobi and the satellite
    town of Thika, residents living along the road, which has since acquired the
    name of Thika Super Highway, have reported changed fortunes.



    Dominic Ombura, a poultry farmer who left his native land in Kisii in western
    Kenya for greener pastures, said he has since dropped thoughts of abandoning his
    business because of the snarl-ups that were a common feature along the old road.



    "The highway has been a blessing to me because I deal with perishable
    commodities like poultry meat that need to be delivered speedily lest they go
    bad," Ombura said.



    Most of Ombura's clients are in Nairobi, and the hustle of going through
    traffic jam daily carrying meat and eggs is not difficult to imagine.



    "There's this day that I'll never forget, there was an accident near Utalii
    College which paralysed activity on the road for 10 hours, we were trapped in
    the jam from 5 a.m. until late in the evening," he recalled.



    "One of my major clients is a fast food joint in the Central Business
    District and that day I was delivering over 100 chicken to them. You can imagine
    the loss I incurred since they were forced to buy from someone else," he added.



    Josephine Wambugu said the infamous traffic snarl-ups that existed before
    completion of the highway almost made her lose her job with a bank based in
    Nairobi.



    "There were days I would report to work at 11 a.m. instead of the stipulated
    time of 8 a.m. even if I left my house at 4 a.m.," she said.



    Wambugu was forced to relocate and rent a house near the city in order to
    keep her job, but upon completion of the highway, she moved back to Thika.



    "Unlike before, I spend less than 20 minutes from my house to the office. The
    super highway is an idea that saved many people," she told Xinhua.



    The involvement of the Chinese in mega infrastructure projects in Kenya has
    been on the increase. The Thika super highway was constructed by Chinese firms
    SinoHydro Corporation, China Wu Yi and Sinopec Shengli Oilfield.



    Thika super-highway was one of the major projects that showcased the close
    China-Kenya relationship, which has continued to grow on the back of converging
    interests in infrastructure, innovation and natural resources.



    Chinese companies are preferred by the Kenyan government because of their
    competitive pricing, workmanship and their ability to complete the projects
    according to schedule or even ahead of time.



    Apartment buildings have also mushroomed along the highway as people take
    advantage of the changed
