Question about player potential

So I was doing some updates to the database for transfers and players who were underrated originally but have since improved. And anyway I noticed that some players have a current ability of say 123, but a potential ability of -8. This is young players mostly. And when in the game these players are deemed promising or 'dubbed the next...' kind of thing.

Any explanation?

It's a numbering system that allows you to place a player in a certain bracket. For example,

-10 = 170-200
-9 = 150-180
-8 = 130-160
-7 = 110-140
-6 = 90-120
-5 = 70-100
-4 = 50-80
-3 = 30-60
-2 = 10-40
-1 = 0-20

You will still have to look after players (training, loaning out, assigning a tutor etc) with a minus 10 though as it doesn't gurantee they'll be brilliant -- just gives them a more likely chance.
