@Luca
He is listed and looks 188 cm. He probably is that tall.Same height as Gagliardini, even 188 cm.

Judd said on 9/Mar/17
In my opinion Van Basten's height has always been a mistery...
look at him with an honest 6'1.25/186cm guy Kakà Click Here ; in that picture Van Basten might pass even for a 6'1.5/187cm guy...
on the other hand with Zlatan (6'4.5/194cm) Click Here Click Here he fight for the 6'1/185cm...
I think that the picture that i posted is a good pic to evaluate his height next to Van Nistelrooy but actually we do not know how thicker are their shoes and even the camera angle...there Van Nistelrooy looks 1,5" taller than Van Basten but in other pictures their difference vary...
the only think that i know for sure is that Van Nistelrooy is visibly taller than Van Basten and my hp is that their difference is a solid inche...
this means that if Ruud Van Nistelrooy is a solid 6'2/188cm guy (188.0-188.5cm) then Marco Van Basten might be a solid 6'1/185cm guy (185.5-186.0 cm)...
Judd said on 9/Mar/17
Actually Lmesiter Van Basten was always listed as 6'2/188cm in late 80's and begin 90's...he's 53 now so I think he has lost (if has lost something) no more than a small faction...
I think personally he was 6'1.25/6'1.5" at peak and now a strong 6'1/185cm guy...or maybe he was never taller than 185/186cm
gabo said on 9/Mar/17
Rob what about Jeremie Janot height? he's listed as 176cm, to me he's not more than 170-173cm range, am i wrong?..
Click Here with Gregory Coupet 179-181 range
Click Here with Julien Sable 180-181 range
Click Here with Jerome Alonzo 184-186 range

Celtic are a good team and need competition in my opinion.

I like The Scottish Premiership, but it's too predictable.
Editor Rob: competition is a good thing, two or one-horse races can get boring after a while.

I like some of the American ideas about drafting, but it's far harder to implement with soccer.
Nik said on 6/Mar/17
@Editor Rob

I think Celtic should go all out for 112 points (37-1-0) as this would be truly legendary whilst also making sure that they don't lose any matches should they draw a few. Yes teams will go all out to beat Celtic in the last 10 matches as there is more at stake for most teams anyway at this stage of the season on top of being desperate to glory in beating Celtic. I remember once Aberdeen beating Celtic in the second half of the season to end an unbeaten league run that season. I think you will crack it this time and go unbeaten all season and get a record points total but you probably won't win all the matches.
Editor Rob: I certainly hope they continue to win, still some tough games to play, even if the league is only 2 weeks away from certainty.
Nik said on 5/Mar/17
Rob, how tall is John Terry please?
Editor Rob: 187cm is possible
Nik said on 5/Mar/17
Hey Rob,

112 points for Celtic?
Editor Rob: Nik, I think that would be remarkable, I can't see it though...in the last 10 ten games every team will be trying their best to end the unbeaten league run.
Johnson said on 5/Mar/17
before they told me his real height I meant
Johnson said on 5/Mar/17
I think you should ask footballers their height. Edgar Davids told me some time ago he was 1.70 m tall, for example. I thought he could be 171 before
Lmeister said on 4/Mar/17
Danny Blind is/was 176cm. 5ft10 is rounded up. His son Daley is 180cm. Marco van Basten is/was 186cm. Maybe he has lost 1-2cm.
Johnson said on 4/Mar/17
@Judd sorry I talked about his son Dailey Blind, forget the previous message
Judd said on 4/Mar/17
rob how tall might be Marco Van Basten if Danny Blind is listed 5'10/178cm (and it's believable) and Rudd Van Nistelrooy is a genuine 6'2/188 cm?

Click Here

He might be a 6'1/185cm guy currently?
Dean 5ft9.25 said on 3/Mar/17
Rob how tall do you think Jamie Vardy is? He's a hard one to pin down!
Editor Rob: 5ft 9 range is ok for him I feel.
Braun said on 2/Mar/17
Luke shaw is 176/77 at most. Check @Manutd's latest picture on Twitter. There's basically no difference between him and Rooney.
Wrs567 said on 1/Mar/17
I think Adam Lallana is exactly about 5'9.25''

He has about a quarter inch on Rooney
Ronaldo said on 1/Mar/17
Zidane 184/185
Thuram
Desailly
Blanc 191
Barthez 178/180
Henry 187
liam said on 27/Feb/17
would you say Lallana is about 175cm or pretty bang on 5'9? looks pretty similar to rooney, perhaps a couple mm more
Johnson said on 25/Feb/17
@Rob any idea in Robert Pires after the 185 claims? I would request him to have a page. Legend in Arsenal in France national team.
Wrs567 said on 25/Feb/17
Rob, Gary Neville is more 5'10'' - 5'10.5''

michelle said on 25/Feb/17
Hi Rob,
What do you think about Cesc Fabregas?? Listed at 5-9 but can appear deceptively tall at times..
Editor Rob: having looked a little more at him, I think 5ft 9 is ok, I wouldn't go more than it.
Johnson said on 22/Feb/17
Gotze is quite taller than Messi
SportsHeight said on 21/Feb/17
Rob, how tall do you think Yaya Toure is? He seems like someone who might be deserving of a page.
Editor Rob: he does look close to 6ft 2
tïno said on 20/Feb/17
Rob how tall do you think ruben loftus cheek is, he is billed at 191 cm
Editor Rob: tino, he can look close to 6ft 3
Alex said on 20/Feb/17
Rob,
Mario Gotze. I wreckon he is around 172 cm tall. surely he is not the 176 cm listed and what about his girlfriend Ann Kathrin Brommel? She's listed at 5'9 on all the sites.
Editor Rob: yeah he might be roughly that 5ft 8 range.
Blake said on 17/Feb/17
Rob, how tall do you think Gary Neville is?
Editor Rob: Blake, he might be near 5ft 9.5
Johnson said on 17/Feb/17
Abidal was listed 186 in Barcelona. I think he is 184.5 exactly
ma said on 17/Feb/17
Trezeguet around 6 ft 2
Johnson said on 15/Feb/17
@Ronaldo Trezeguet looks taller than Henry. Around 189 cm
Ronaldo said on 13/Feb/17
David Trézéguet 187 cm
Rory said on 12/Feb/17
Tousart was another odd listing at Lyon, listed 176 for ages but always looked 185.
Rory said on 12/Feb/17
Cornet isn't tall he looks about 5'10, Nkoulou interests me though because he's always been listed at 180cm but I think he can look 184 or 185 quite often, certainly not under 183cm anyway. Yh Jallet looks about 175cm. I'm not as familiar with the heights of the likes of Mateta because as far as first team football goes he rarely features. Lyon has rarely had very tall players, off the top of my head I think of John Carew,Boumsong etc, even at centre back our players rarely top 6'1, Cris,squillaci,bisevac,mbiwa,mammana,toulalan etc.
Johnson said on 10/Feb/17
@Rory good heights in that team. Valbuena is 165.5 in my opinion. Memphis Depay 176 Lacazette 175... Jallet listed 178 but I am sure he is 175.5 or so

I was checking the squad: Diaby, NGouma, Cornet and Mateta are very tall too
Nik said on 10/Feb/17
@Rory

Ok thanks for that. What is the average height of your regular team?
ma said on 10/Feb/17
Messi 169
Fabregas 178
Seems better
Rory said on 9/Feb/17
@ Nik, I support Lyon fc in France. We have quite a short team actually only really Diakhaby and Gonalons are the tall players.
Johnson said on 8/Feb/17
Messi is around 5'7. Fabregas not a full 5'11 but 5'10.5, 179 cm. He was listed 179 in Barcelona
Nik said on 8/Feb/17
Wrs567

Well if you have accurately noticed a 4 inch gap between Messi and Fabregas on a few occasions then you may have solved the conundrum on what both their heights are. I saw a glimpse of Fabregas at the weekend in the Chelsea V Arsenal match and he did give me the impression that he could be close to 5'10" but like you don't think that he is a 5'11" guy.
Wrs567 said on 8/Feb/17
I think Cesc Fabregas could be close to 5'10''

Cesc was at least 4 inches taller than Messi back in his Barcelona days

But no way he is tall as 5'11''

Henderson doesn't look anything under 185cm, I think he's a potential 186cm even. 182cm is certainly out of the question.
Jakob said on 5/Feb/17
For sure, agreed, although personally I don't think Cesc looks more than 5ft 9 range, his original 175 could be when he was younger but 180 listings are off IMO. I wouldn't guess more than 177. He's a great midfielder as well. I saw him in a friendly match about 10 years ago and he had such a great range of passing and made the game look easy. But I was way too far away to notice his height!
Nik said on 5/Feb/17
@Hi

I think that 177 cm for mkhitaryan is a joke. Yeah I think he is probably 173 or 174 cm like you said.
Jakob said on 5/Feb/17
Ahhh, that makes sense. Thanks Rob.
Johnson said on 5/Feb/17
Henderson the same case as Lallana or Cesc Fabregas... old listings when they were 16 years old
Blake said on 4/Feb/17
Rob, any idea on how tall Christian Eriksen is?
Nik said on 4/Feb/17
@Nightwish @Rory

I only said that David Luiz often does not look his official height of 6'2' to me. I am merely saying he sometimes gives me the impression or the illusion of being smaller than what he is, that is what I am saying in the post, There are plenty of other people who do not always look exactly what they are and to me he is one of them. I am not actually saying I think that's what his height is, common sense says that as a central defender he is more likely to be 6'2" than 5'10" and I have heard from quite a few sources before of him being 6'2' as well. I have no problem with the player or his club by the way just in case anyone wondered that.

@Rob

Rob, what dou you say about Michael Ballack? He often looks solid 6'2 to me but ı am not sure. How tall dou you think?
Jakob said on 2/Feb/17
Rob, the footballer Jordan Henderson (Liverpool) is listed on Wikipedia as 5'11 1/2", I would have thought he could pull off 6ft 1 let alone 6ft! What do you think?
Editor Rob: Jakob, the 5ft 11.5 could have been one of those listings coming from when he was aged 16-17 and not quite at maximum height yet.
Alex said on 31/Jan/17
What's your say on Jermain Defoe,listed at 170 on wikipedia? Would you agree that seems pretty true?
Hi said on 29/Jan/17
Rob, How tall do you think is mkhitaryan? He is listed at 177 cm but at times could look shorter than 175cm Rooney and was even about a half inch shorter than 175 cm Jose mourinho in one picture . He seems less than 5'9. Is it possible that he is 173-174?
Editor Rob: yeah 174 range is possible.
Rory said on 28/Jan/17
David Luiz 5'10 ? Poppycock. Luiz always looks about 6ft 2.
graham said on 26/Jan/17
Can you believe Marco Silva the new Hull manager is claimed to be 180cm everywhere? What is your guess? He seems to have short arms at least lol
Johnson said on 26/Jan/17
And Fabregas 5'5 what a joke. Fabregas is 5'10.5
Rory said on 26/Jan/17
@wrs567
I can't see Rashford as being 6'1 in that picture, he looks about 3 inches shorter than Pogba.
James said on 25/Jan/17
Rob, Ferdinand's height is baffling, Ballack is clearly a solid 188 (as shown with JT) but Rio seems to have 3 inches on him? Always assumed he was around 6'3.

Nightwish said on 24/Jan/17
If David Luiz is 5'10 then Thiago Silva deserves a downgrade to 5'7ish and Julio Cesar to 5'8ish!
Nik said on 23/Jan/17
I have one or 2 interesting observations from the Chelsea v Hull match yesterday, firstly David Luiz certainly does not give me the impression of being 6'2" and in fact he often only looks about 5'10" ! On the other hand though Diego Costa looks like a giant at times and certainly never looks less than his official height, which I think is 6'1". I would be interested to see them stood near to each other although I am not saying that their heights are different to what people popularly know them to be, it is probably just an illusion ! Finally I would like to say that the referee was rubbish, he got just about every major decision in the game wrong. Hull should have had a penalty early in the second half and Chelsea's first goal should not have been allowed to stand due to a fowl in the build up. Also Diego Costa put the ball in the net for Chelsea in the first half and was flagged for offside incorrectly. I think Chelsea may have had a case for a penalty themselves in the game although I am not totally sure on that one.
Wrs567 said on 21/Jan/17
Paul Pogba is listed as 6'3.25'' on this site

I honestly can't see Rashford under 6'1'' next to him

Click Here

My guess for Martial is a decent 6'0''
spainmen191cm said on 20/Jan/17
Rob, how tall do you think is Alvaro Morata?
Z187 said on 18/Jan/17
I originally thought rashford was near 6-1 also, however looking at him with Pogba, Ibra, martial, darmian... he's only going to be 6' range... he's the same height as martial & darmian (probably both near 183cm) ...

And look at him here with Harry Kane, Lewandoski, Higuain, and Cavani... he's clearly 2 inches shorter than Kane ...

Click Here
Rory said on 18/Jan/17
No that's wrong for Ramos, he's notably taller than Casillas, not just 1 cm. Ramos has to be 182-3 range, can't rly see less than that for him.

@Rob kun Aguero is taller than Messi, for me he is 5'8

Actually no I don't think Dele is a solid 6ft 2. I think Kane is, but Dele looks 186-7.

Alli looks 6'2 to me more than 6'1.
Nik said on 15/Jan/17
@Nightwish

I could see Ian Holloway being about 5'6.75".

@Editor Rob

How tall is Raheem Sterling? He looks very small compared to most players.
Editor Rob: Nik, certainly no more than 5ft 7, another good example of a nimble small player and how being that height can be a benefit in movement.

Hi Rob, how tall do you think Aguero is ?
Editor Rob: can seem a 5ft 6 or 7 guy
CNROM89 said on 14/Jan/17

Editor Rob: 6ft 4 I think is more believable for him.

@Spurs325 Na, I think that Dele Alli and Harry Kane are the same height I would go for 188 for both lowest for Alli would be 187 imo.

Johnson said on 10/Jan/17
His brother told me Rashford is 185 cm (6'1)
Rory said on 10/Jan/17
Rashford I think is a solid 184, and could potentially grow to 185 although unlikely. Definitely not under 6ft when compared to Pogba,Rooney,Ibra etc.
189Night said on 9/Jan/17
No way is Rashford under 6'0, he looks tall next to most 6'2+ players I personally would go anywhere between 184-186
CNROM89 said on 9/Jan/17
I think Michael Carrick is strong 6'2. Maybe 189 cm is possible for him. He is over 190 cm in the morning clearly.
Johnson said on 9/Jan/17
@jakob that solid 197 you say, in the morning and in medicals is 198.5 (199) for Van der Sar. So it makes sense those listings over 197
anon said on 8/Jan/17
How Tall is Jack Grealish?
Jakob said on 7/Jan/17
I see a lot of people upgrading Van der Sar to 198 or even 199, he was always listed 197 pretty consistently through his career. Maybe Rob you could give him a page someday? He was a pretty good keeper and won a lot of trophies, and seemed a likeable guy. I would list him as 197/6ft 5.75in

MDV said on 3/Jan/17
Rob, can you please add Sergio Ramos? He is in extraordinary shape and very discussed in the world for his goals in the last minutes of his matches ! Best defender at the moment in the world!
Nik said on 2/Jan/17
@Editor Rob

Yes I agree that the championship is virtually won for Celtic. I don't think that they will take their eye off the ball so they should be trying to get a record points total, and in making these attempts the championship would take care of its self. It will be interesting to see if Celtic can make it "10 in a row" in 4 years time. I certainly think it will be an exciting ride should they get really near to that record. On another note it will be interesting to see if Chelsea can win at Tottenham and equal the record Arsenal set, but that was over 2 seasons. Celtic and Chelsea could both be run away trains this season (Celtic already are) and it is fascinating that both could set new records for their countries by winning more successive league matches than anyone else ever has.
Editor Rob: Nik, I believe it will be hard - Rangers will improve and by year 9 I feel they will throw everything to stop the chance at 10.

From the outside looking in, the SPL can probably seem boring for 30 years with just Celtic/Rangers winning it, but hey, as a Celtic fan, a league win is still a beautiful thing 👍👍
anon said on 1/Jan/17
Rob, How Tall would you guess West Brom Goalkeeper Ben Foster?

Listed 6'4 looks shorter to me, maybe 6'2 range Id have guessed him not too sure on him though
Editor Rob: anon, 6ft 4 certainly seems too tall for big Ben, I'd have thought 6ft 3 at most.
Nik said on 31/Dec/16
@Editor Rob

Happy new year!

There are so many things for Celtic to go for in the new year Rob, the championship, a possible treble, record points total, unbeaten league season, and a 100% home record at the end of the season. I think you will get the championship (6 in a row would it be?) and maybe one or more of the other things as well.
Editor Rob: Nik, the treble would be great, we'll see, the championship is literally won now, would take a collapse of biblical proportions to throw it away.
Rory said on 28/Dec/16
Yh no way is Valbuena 5'6. I'd say 5'4 range.

How tall is Coutinho ? 171 cm ?
Nasir said on 27/Dec/16
no way Veratti is 167. He is 163-165
Johnson said on 25/Dec/16
Shaqiri could be 167 or 167.5. There is a bad picture with Ribery that fool us, anyway Ribery is a legit 171.5 cm guy. Insigne looks 163 cm tall, and Verrati 167-168. Samir Nasri is listed 175 and 178 I would say he is 176.5 cm
Pete 6'0,5 said on 24/Dec/16
Rob, how tall do you reckon the polish striker Robert Lewandowski is? He gets listed at 6' - 6'1.5". I'd pin him at 184. What is your guess?:)
Editor Rob: he is deceptively tall...I think in fact he's taller than he measures.
Pete said on 23/Dec/16
How tall would you say the Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri is? He's listed as 169cm, but doesn't seem that. I know he's quite squat but he appears more of a 166cm.

Also, what is your say on Lorenzo Insigne (listed as 163) and Mathieu Valbuena, who is listed as 168cm but seems to have the proportions of a guy of 164.

What's your say, Rob?
Editor Rob: Shaqiri looks a 5ft 5-5.5 range guy at times.

Valbuena looks under 5ft 6 too.
Johnson said on 22/Dec/16
David Silva looks 170 cm tall. Iniesta 171 (measured over that mark) and Mata 171.5 cm

ROB, how tall does Luka Modric looks here?

Editor Rob: he can look at most 5ft 7 I feel.

I think Rob should add Luka Modric 171 cm, Isco 176 cm or Andrés Iniesta 171
Andrew said on 18/Dec/16
Rob, I still can't believe daniel sturridge is listed as 6'2 on Google
MDV said on 16/Dec/16
Hi Rob, could you please give me a Christmas present ? Can you add Sergio Ramos? Best defender in world and if Pique was added I think he deserves a page to; plus he is very active on social network and thus very popular; I think you will have tons of comments and guesses on his new page :)
Johnson said on 16/Dec/16
If you google Mata and Rooney, and: Mata Rooney Januzaj, you will see Mata is close to Rooney in height. Mata can be 171.5 if Rooney is 176 no less for Juan Mata.
SportsHeight said on 15/Dec/16
Rob, what do you think for Michael Ballack? Looks 6'1.5" to 6'2" for me.
Editor Rob: Sports, yes he always looked somewhere in that range, near 6ft 2.

Lucas Vasquez?
Nightwish said on 5/Dec/16
I'd be very surprised if Holloway was as low as 5'6. Believe he's listed at 5'8 but looking at him with 5'6 Gary Johnson, Jamie Cureton (5'8 listing!!!), Charlie Adam etc I'd be very surprised if he came under 5'7. Of course, as is the case with football everyone else's height could be over exaggerated as is almost certainly the case with Cureton.

Rob, how tall is QPR boss Ian Holloway ?

Christian-196.2cm (6ft5.25)

Thanks for that. I wasn't sure it was Peter Crouch or not before you told me. It would be interesting to know who is the tallest player to have ever played in any of the British leagues if anyone knows.
Editor Rob: Nik, I get a short 5ft 6 feel from Holloway, but never paid much attention to him.
Johnny said on 2/Dec/16
@Rob how tall do you think Peter Shilton was at his peak?
Editor Rob: Johnny, I seen Shilton at one of those collectormania events a few years ago, he looked sub 6ft, but I think peak was around 6ft range.
mande2013 said on 2/Dec/16
If the average male height is 179/180 in most Scandinavian countries and straddling 6'0 in the Netherlands, then why do people make exaggerated claims, such as "5'9 in Holland is like 5'5 in the US". The average height for white non-hispanic American males is 5'10, and it's barely two inches more in The Netherlands, so a 5'9 guy there would be like a strong 5'7 white guy in the US, and a 5'9 guy in Scandinavia would be like a 5'8 white guy in the US, so really, not the end of the world.
Johnson said on 1/Dec/16
Some athletes are downlisted, as Shelly Ann Fraser-Pryce, listed 5 feet 152 cm and she is 157. She also has an official listing of 160 cm but she is not that tall either
SportsHeight said on 1/Dec/16
Rob, what's your understanding of body fat percentages? There seems to be a lot of misinformation being dissipated, with celebrities often claiming extremely low BF percentages. What do you consider to be the male BF range for elite athletes vs. models vs. actors vs. Average Joes?
Editor Rob: SportsHeight, bodyfat percentages is an area I haven't thought of greatly, but typically your average bloke might be 15-20% and an athletic bloke 6-12% range.
Female models with 5-8% range would be very skinny, anorexic like.

Ruud Gullit seems 9cm-10cm taller than Ronald Koeman, Koeman seems about 7cm shorter than Bergkamp, van Basten seems 2cm-3cm shorter than Bergkamp.

Vibram said on 28/Nov/16
hm, The Dutch average of 184cm is exaggerated. Its more like 181-2cm. Jonny Heitinga played for Everton. I still think Kevin de Bruyne is 5'10 range not 5'11. Soon-to-be England manager Gareth Southgate was listed anything from 182cm to 186cm in his playing days. My Euro 2000 book seems to have it correct - 183cm (6ft0) for him. Alan Shearer is 179cm (5ft10.5) not 183cm he was always listed (other sources I have say 180cm). He's about 1 inch taller than 5ft9.5 Lineker.
hm said on 25/Nov/16
why are so many of the top Dutch stars far under the 184 average for the nation's height for men?

Sneijder is 170. Robben is 179/180. Van Persie is 185. I believe that centerback who played for Everton and Atletico was 180cm. forgot his name.

Maradona is taller than most people give him credit for. 166 cm -167 cm, sometimes he even looked 168 cm but probably closer to 167 cm.

He can look 6ft4 with Ronaldo a lot.

van Nistelroij has always been closer to 190 cm than 188 cm, a little taller than Kluivert

@Johnson

It certainly is a possibility! Personally, I think Pires is more 186.5 cm, but 187 cm on the dot is pretty close also.

Davids is tricky, sometimes he can look a flat 170 cm, other times 171-172, he could be up to 171 cm in my opinion, 172 cm is perhaps too tall for him.

I think Zidane is up to 3 full cm shorter than Henry, but that can also be debatable in making Zidane a tad shorter since Henry I think is no taller than 187.5 cm

Thanks you
Editor Rob: at 17 there's still potential...up till 20-21 a proportion still gain height. The fact you are playing soccer is good, that might help a little with boosting growth hormone production compared to a 17 year old who barely did any exercise.

-Wesley Sneijder - 170

19 yr old striker Marcus Rashford listed as 5'11 he must be taller than that tho likely still growing he might be 6'1 at a guess?
HeightCurious said on 1/Nov/16
Rob, could you have a guess about the height of those players ? I have serious doubt about them:

-Zlatan Ibrahimovic - very "large" range: 192 to 195
-Robin van Persie - even worst range: 183 to 188
-Thomas Muller - 185 to 188
-Wesley Sneijder - 170 is too much to him I think

What do you think? Thanks in advance.

I personally don't think that Puyol is a 5 ft 10 because he always look shorter by more than an inch of 5 ft 11 players like Beckham and Ronaldinho.

Hey Rob, could you add a page for french footballer Mathieu Valbuena? I know that he's not really a star but his height has been a hot topic lately.

Griezmann has been listed 175 cm in Atletico de Madrid last 2 seasons (Atletico update data every season since the last 3 ones). But he was listed in Real Sociedad 176 cm. He is very slightly shorter than Koke (solid 176). So everybody could bet some of our money that he reaches 175 cm mark on medicals

Guardiola was listed 183 last year in Bayern's official web in German you can research in wayback machine plus it was listed his shoe size. Also Guardiola was listed 183 in the net in Barcelona through waybackmachine when he was a player around 1999

Johnson said on 14/Sep/16
@Slh some heights are from junior teams 15-16 years old and they don't update. Ronaldinho is similar to Guardiola who was listed 183 cm in Bayern but I think he is 182 cm
Slh said on 13/Sep/16
No way Ronaldinho is 181-182cm ( 5ft11-11,5in)
He was listed at 5ft10 ( 178 cm) back then during 2001 when he was in Gremio. He was already 21 years old so I don't think he has grown.

Editor Rob: he looks close to 6ft, you can see him near Griffiths and Patrick Roberts, guys who are close to 5ft 8 and at most 5ft 6
SewellAnthony said on 10/Sep/16
@Rob what do you think about the European Champion with Portugal, and now Barcelona player Andr§ Gomes? He is listed at 188 cm
Editor Rob: wouldn't bet on 188cm, seems a bit less
James said on 7/Sep/16
I think Iker Casillas and Mathieu Valbuena should get a page, Rob.
Jakob said on 5/Sep/16
Giroud I think looks a strong 6ft 3. Some of the photos with Pogba are oddly distorting. I'm not sure he is his listed 192 but he must be close
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/16
188cm is too low for Wenger. He looked about the same as Prince William. 189-190cm range is closer for him. Maybe 6ft3 peak?
James said on 4/Sep/16
Benzema is 182 cm, he is shorter than Bale by far.
James said on 3/Sep/16
Henry is almost confirmed to be around 187, Wenger looks 1cm taller in most pics, and Giroud is around an inch taller than Wenger. Giroud looks around 190 range, certainly not taller than Pogba.
Arch Stanton said on 2/Sep/16
I've be extremely surprised if Giroud is under 6'3. On the pitch he can really look around 6 ft 4. Look at him with Arsene Wenger. Now look at Wenger with Prince William. See what I mean?

Rob, how tall do you think is Oliver Giroud? He is listed at 192cm but I think he can look shorter than Pogba who himself has claimed to be 191cm tall
Editor Rob: 6ft 3 is very possible, but I can see how he can look taller than that too.

Rob,could you add balotelli?

Isco 176cm and Luka Modric
Another picture, next to each other
Click Here
Luka Modric is likely 170-171cm tops, nowhere close to 5'9" range (or 175cm)
jessman said on 31/Aug/16
Lukaku looks more like a strong 6'2 (189cm) to me. In team photos with Belgium football team he is considerably shorter than Courtois, Van Buyten, and Fellaini. Benteke looks a decent 6'3.

Rob,

What's your guess for Olivier Giroud ?
Editor Rob: 6ft 3 range rather than 4.
Arch Stanton said on 30/Aug/16
I'd be extremely surprised if Giroud was just 189. He looks a huge guy on the pitch, both tall and broad. Wenger doesn't look shorter than Prince William who is around 190 and Giroud is definitely bigger than Wenger.
189 Night said on 29/Aug/16
Rob, what would you say for Benteke & Lukaku both listed at 190-191, but they look different heights when standing together I say 190-191 for Lukaku and 192 for Benteke.
Editor Rob: Lukaku said he was 6ft 4, he can look 6ft 3-4 zone.

How tall is Samuel Umtiti the French defender of Barcelona? He is listed 181 cm tall but I think he is around 183 cm
Firdaus said on 29/Aug/16
Mourinho looks closer to 177 cm than 174 cm
Firdaus said on 29/Aug/16
175cm looks too high for Griezmann, 171-172 looks more like his range
Rodrigo said on 29/Aug/16
What do you think the height of mario mandzukic is because everywhere i look it says 187 189 or 190cm
qwyx said on 28/Aug/16
Rob,

what's your guess for Modric? He islisted anywhere from 5'6 to 5'9
Editor Rob: 5ft 8 or 9 looks too much, 5ft 6 or 7 looks more realistic.
Johnson said on 28/Aug/16
@qwyx Atletico lists Griezmanm at 1.75 m. Perhaps there are some listings of 176 because he was measured 175.5 in some occasion. He is 175 cm tall. I don't believe they fake the medicaks, he is close to Koke 176 cm
Firdaus said on 28/Aug/16
Hey Rob, how tall do you think Wayne Rooney is ? Listed 176 cm everywhere
Editor Rob: he's on Here at 5ft 9 on the nose.
qwyx said on 27/Aug/16
Rob,

is Griezmann worth adding? listed at 176
you said he looks 5'7.5
how tall does he look with CR?

Editor Rob: will need to think on him.
morris said on 27/Aug/16
what is your opinion about higuain; i think he is 1.83cm
Johnson said on 25/Aug/16
@Arch Stanton Giroud is not that tall. He stands with Varane or Pogba in Clairefontain with the French team. Giroud is 189-190
Arch Stanton said on 24/Aug/16
With Wenger who I think has got to be in 6'2.5-6'3 range Click Here Giroud looks close to 6'4 IMO.
Arch Stanton said on 24/Aug/16
Rob what would you guess for Giroud? I'm seeing 6'2 range and 6'3 estimates here which I find way too low. I caught him during Euro 2016 and he really stood out among the others as a big, solid built guy, I wouldn't want to have to defend against him! I'd be surprised if he was under 6'3.5. I mwan look at him with Wenger who at worst I think could be 6'2.5. Click Here
