KayKay, we're not saying that you can't be the best. But it is true that not everyone can. I'm sure nearly every pro footballer has practiced and practiced for many years, every time giving 100%. But only one of them can be the best. It's not that the others didn't try, it's other indescribable reasons.
Except you make it sound so very nice. :P

Yes, you can still improve by working in a basement with a tennis ball. Practice juggling and dribbling. Make sure to practice dribbling straight and dribbling while doing lots of cuts, rolls, turns, fakes, etc. However, you aren't going to be able to improve much at anything other than control from juggling and dribbling. You need a normal sized ball to work on passing, receiving, and shooting. Or at least closer to a normal size than a tennis ball.

Not necessarily; one of the drills I like to do with a tennis ball is wall passing. Of course since the tennis ball is so small it is very difficult to hit it while it is along the ground, so instead you must keep it bouncing and make contact with it on the half volley and volley. Try hitting the ball first time as it comes back to you and keeping it going for as long as you can. You can also experiment with hitting the ball with different parts of your foot to simulate the instep drive, push pass, etc.

Basically tennis balls are more used to practice touches in the air.

George Best practice his volleys with a tennis ball, volleying towards his house's doorknob repeatedly. He volleys were good. Dunno bout the doorknob tho'.

You cud take a plank( something that makes loud, different noise) and cut some small shapes out, nail it towards wall or something, and use tennis ball to volley against it. (use it for shooting practice).

Some people probably don't, and he might be one of them. Although, if he has a computer, then he likely has TP.

Nah man, back in motherland its all about washing. When I came to Canada 5 years ago I was like "HEIN?! They wipe here?!" Thats when I learned the concept of wiping but before that it was just washing.

There are various devices to wash your ass. They have a spray where after taking a dump you just hold it behind your butt and then press the button, resulting in water being sprayed on your ass and washing the uhhh nastiness off.

In some homes in motherland, there is a built in spray in the commode at the back. When you turn it on, it just sprays water out and washes your uhhh nastiness off. Its automatic, you just gotta sit back, turn it on and then relax as water comes out of the commode washing your ass.

But then motherland is poor so there arent many fancy devices like these so we gotta go jungle style

By that I mean, using a jug...

That was a lesson in potty training back in motherland.
