Potential rating meaningless?

So in Career Mode I have David Villa whose now 86+1 (maybe 2?). Supposedly his potential rating is only supposed to be 85, so does that mean the potential ratings are either soft or meaningless?

No, I think it's just a prediction of how much further he has to progress to give you a gauge on how far from a peak their player is but if he excells himself then theres no reason a player can't go over their potential rating!
