Top Definition
A term used in Scottish soccer newsgroups to indicate unwarranted hyperbole attributing special skills or qualities, especially to soccer players, with little evidence to support them.

Origin: Christian Nerlinger, a German soccer player who signed for Glasgow Rangers with great anticipation of his being an exceptional player but who later proved to be a grave disappointment.

Formerly Nerlinger's Syndrome.
"This boy may only have played for half an hour but I've seen enough to suggest we have landed a future great."

"No, you are just afflicted with Nerlingers."
