There is pictures of neymar standing next to Lewis Hamilton who is 5”8 at a recent tommy hilfigure fashion show and they are exactly the same height, shoulder to shoulder so this listing is accurate

I glimpsed Neymar the other day as he exited the Paris Opera house following a fashion event. Surprisingly, he was quite average looking although he was a ways away, like 20-30 feet. I'll buy the 5'8 though.

I think this is why Neymar was shorter than Bieber in that photos, because he is 169cm!
Rob, What do you think about this?
Johnson said on 17/Aug/17
@Canson yes, because I like medical tests and I have talked to some footballers and clubs giving exact figures

But I fight against:

bust a gut
Errors of medition of nurses
Wrong leaked figures

The problem is most of colleagues and friends I know (honest people I mean not the liars) say figures of medical tests. Tests are done during the morning normally.

So I would find awkward downgrade colleagues and footballers saying: you are not 170 you are 169 because tests are in the morning and your low is 169 in the afternoon. It sounds too freak not trust in medicals...

What I try get is the height for famous people and colleagues during the typical tests (but not cheating with bust a gut and not too early, because regular people are not measured 3 hours after waking up normally). Rob has proved 173 because he told me he is 173 in medical tests
Canson said on 16/Aug/17
@Johnson: your "predictions" are three hours out of bed. That means everyone's heights are inflated
lasla said on 13/Aug/17
rob, do you think that neymar can reach 176cm in the first minute out of bed in morning?
Editor Rob: no, I doubt he gets near that.
andre said on 12/Aug/17
nymar 170cm barefoot
Canson said on 9/Aug/17
I have to agree with Rob, Johnson Messi is at most 173. More likely 172.7 like he's listed
Warren said on 9/Aug/17
For @Johnson Click Here
I see 4cm height difference between them. My guess is Neymar 172.7 Messi 168.7 before them going to bed in a reality
almost correct Neymar 173 and Messi 169 I think
MD said on 9/Aug/17
@Rob, I know this is a height site, but since a lot was made of his weight very early on (and he's since gotten a little bigger), can ou add this recent quote from last Friday:

"I weigh 69kg, and I'll remain at 69kg."

Click Here

I believe when he was going to Barcelona back in 2013, he was most often (and often still) listed as being 64 or 65 kgs.
Johnson said on 8/Aug/17
My predictions are 3 + hours out of bed

My typical prediction

Neymar 173.8
Messi 170.3

Search for pictures: Messi Neymar Gamper

Those pictures James posted do not favor Messi. They are more similar on pitch with same shoes

Warren, If he's 173 at night then he'd be maybe 173.3 in the early afternoon. Late morning for him wouldn't be that much different than his afternoon height either maybe plus 2mm. Depends too on your definition of late AM. Late AM could be 4-5 hours after being awake by which point you'd probably have lost at least 5/8" assuming you lose 3/4" in a day. I myself have had days where I have been all the way down to flat 194 after 5 hours if I go to the gym in the AM and am on my feet the entire time
Canson said on 29/Jul/17
@Warren: very tall is the category I fall in imho that's 6'3 to maybe 6'5 or 6'6". I think above 6'6" is extremely tall and giant is up around 6'9" evening height. However I do see a lot of people that are taller than me just in my circle of friends (have 3 close friends who are- 6'5+, 6'6, 6'7). If you asked them they would say that 6'3" is ideal for a very tall person which I agree with. Which is why I don't get why some of these 6'3 guys claim 6'5" etc

He is 174 cm cause his hair. Without hair hes no longer than 172 cm.

it looks like a posture of a person being tip toes and trying to gain 1 cm. His standing posture is not natural for me.
Warren said on 21/Jul/17
Ok, I rephrase that his 174 was the late-morning height right, btw u r super tall man! (20cm taller than me)
Canson said on 20/Jul/17
@Warren: you don't lose 1.1cm between afternoon and evening. You lose around a cm in 1-1.5 hours of being awake. Usually afternoon to evening is very minimal. Neymar is 173 afternoon. I like Johnson but he inflates people a couple cm all the time especially the soccer players going off of what "a club told them". A club more likely than not will inflate their players stats just like NBA teams if talking about a player give their height in shoes and sometimes round up. I can't speak for everyone but most people you see comment are relatively similar. I wake up on normal sleep 195.8cm and am 194.9 after an hour. Then typically have lost almost a full 1/2" post 2 hours (194.6). I'm usually 194 after 6 hours tops then dip to 193.9 if I don't do anything else
Johnson said on 19/Jul/17
@Richard in August website normally update data. I think they will put Neymar at 174... due to 174.1

I think it is funny but 13-14 he was 175, 14-15 he was 174 15-16 he was 174 and 16-17 he was 175

So I guess with bust a gut method he was close to 175 mark

Anyway...anybody can give me the link of the whole video where he is measured 174.1. We only have the picture of the missing user...

Richard said on 19/Jul/17
Yes Rob I measured myself and I can confirm that with the hair can be 0.5 / 0.8 cm. Considering that he has frizzy hair most likely it is just between 0.6 / 0.8 cm so I suppose he is 173.5 in the early morning and then about 172.5 cm in the afternoon. Neymar certainly isn't 171 cm and at most it could reach just over 172 cm before going to sleep after an intense training.
P.S.
But obviously on the official website of Barcelona they put 175 cm.
Editor Rob: depending on just how many hours he was up (2 or 3?), I think about 5ft 8 is still ok, you could argue he drops to 172cm.
Richard said on 18/Jul/17
Rob this is how they measured his height: you can clearly see that they have avoided ruining his hair and that the stadiometer doesn't adhere to his head.
Click Here
Thoughts?
Editor Rob: you could potentially knock off a 1/4 inch from what that Physician measured him at.
Warren said on 18/Jul/17
and 174.1 is his afternoon height I think
so 173 is the night height
truth said on 18/Jul/17
that stadiometer reading 174.1 cm is not even close to touching his head, it's ridiculous. it's 3cm above it at least and barely touches the top of his hair. I guess if he had a 5 inch afro he'd be 6 foot. doctors felt generous or were paid to keep his image intact. he's not more than 171.
Enzo said on 17/Jul/17
Click Here
in this case forehead is not highest point of head
so 174.1 cm is obviously correct
Johnson said on 17/Jul/17
@All but if you look the long mark of Neymar wings is 175 where the user put 171 and 172 is 172 and 173. Table is 170.

Plus it is not easy to estimate due to angles

I think the stadiometer is very good it is expensive model of seca
Richard said on 17/Jul/17
Hi Rob, have you seen the picture posted by Gojii? Neymar hardly comes to 171 cm and at most it could reach 172 cm.

In the picture where it says "174.1" it seems that the machine don't touch the Vertex, the highest point of the head, but also consider the hair, giving it 2 cm more.

Mascherano is measured 174.7, barefoot as all Barcelona players, this year. We can see the pic with figure measuring him

Neymar cannot be shorter than him in any case taller than Mascherano

Morning 174.5-175.4 for Neymar in medicals for sure... it is a safe bet. Gusting a but.

174 (5'8.5) later on the day without gusting a but is a safe bet for Neymar.

Canson said on 20/Mar/17
I meant Jason Maxiell in my last post. Stupid autocorrect
Canson said on 17/Mar/17
@Johnson: I understand where you are coming from but when you use words like "unfair" and make rules of 2 hours out when nobody else is and the net result is you inflating most of the people you comment on, that's why people see it like that. At least if a pre draft is there (those often are inflated) there is no reason to inflate it even further honestly. Now yes some may grow. Jason Mariel may have because I played ball against him and he wasn't any taller than me nothing the eye could see without standing straight in front of him (maybe 1/2") and boom he's 197 today so he likely was 6'5 flat at the time and is 6'5.5 or so today but that is not common and surely not as common as you think. The "so and so grew" is propaganda that is thrown out by a coach scout or insider of an organization to hype players up. Far fewer players actually grow than those who dont
Johnson said on 16/Mar/17
@Canson I mean all it's distorted. It's not easy to compare. It's ridiculous compare people of 6'5 with a person of 5'7 for example. Difficult to calculate distance, that is my point. Not because they are tall or short. I don't care about people to be tall or short. It is ridiculous. I am everyday correcting football teams and players because they list footballers taller than they are by mistake, If I liked them to be tall, I would like it, and I am obsessed with accuracy so I am honest with my opinions
Canson said on 15/Mar/17
@Johnson: what is unfair have to do with his height? You just proved here that you do want people to be taller than they are

Johnson said on 9/Mar/17
I think it is unfair to compare Neymar or another average person with really tall people like Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant. They are really not close in height, it is better to compare with shorter people
Canson said on 7/Mar/17
I certainly do not believe he is 5'7" barefoot but who knows. They do list some of these guys with shoes. He is more likely at least weak 5'8". I used to think he was a bit higher but after seeing the hair closely he isn't. And that's about 9 inches with Kobe Bryant not 10. He's not standing straight

Wow, haven't been posting here regularly since early November, so was surprised to come back and finally see the quarter-inch taken off. lol I'd called this from just soon after the page was created. He is 5'8" tops.
Truth said on 24/Jan/17
James, I think being short having a low center of gravity and short stride help to make skillful dribblers but there are players over 6 foot who are also fast and skilled. Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Henry, Draxler, Cavani, Morata, Auba, Zaha, Lewa. Cristiano and Henry are the best of the bunch and can hang with the players you listed in both speed and skill. The others may lack the skill but are all faster than those you listed. Being short may help with dribbling but it doesn't help top end speed which is what all these 6 ft plus players have.
Gaza2121 said on 23/Jan/17
5'8" is laughable. There is so much evidence to suggest he's 5'7" at best. Even Justin Bieber is taller than him. Get real!

If Neymar were 6 ft tall... would he be so skillful and fast? I don't remember any football player who was 6 ft or taller and able to be fast and good at dribbling. Yes Gareth Bale is fast... bus is he skillful at dribbling? Maradona, Pelé, Neymar, Ronaldinho, the young Brazilian Ronaldo... all of them are under 6 ft. That helped them to be more agile.

He's a full head taller, what's that close to 10 inches? Plus he's leaning in losing some height. Even if Neymar does have less footwear he's still at least 10 inches shorter. 5'7" max!
Blake said on 4/Dec/16
I honestly think he is 172cm do you think there is a chance Rob?
Editor Rob: he has a tiny frame which adds to a perception of being comfortably average. 172cm I'm not sure, I could see at times that argument, other times he looked a solid 173cm range.

Nah. Along with all of the other evidence, the recent pictures with Bieber show them very close in height, and we know Bieber isn't taller than listed.
James said on 2/Sep/16
So is he the same height as you, Rob? He always gave the impression of a taller guy, let's say 5'9" as he was listed on many websites before becoming a star at Barcelona. Well, I guess the fact that he is very skinny makes him appear taller. He seems well proportioned.

Next to Lionel Messi he can appear 5'9" at times.
Editor Rob: somewhere in 173, possibly near 174 looks more likely than 175 to me.

Johnson said on 18/Jul/16
He was measured in a clip of Barcelona his armspan (183 I think) and right on the side of his head there was a table indicating references with marks of height every 5 cms. The top of his head was around 174-175. Guessing the table starts at 170 cm tall. It is easy to guess Messi was around the end of the table wgen he was posing for armspan too

Height said on 14/Jun/16
@MD The hat position (more air space, not close to the head) on Lewis Hamilton and the fact that he is just a little closer to the camera could be adding some height to him.
MD said on 13/Jun/16
If you go to Hamilton's page, you see picture after picture showing him 171 MAX independent of the measurement you're talking about. He's not taller than listed. Point is that even if he was, it would not be by nearly enough to explain Neymar looking so short in the picture below.
Editor Rob: 5ft 8 flat for neymar is always possible, when there is half inch or so between people, it isn't a great deal.

@MD Lewis Hamilton was measured around 171 but we don't know if he was actually 171 and a half at that moment. He was surprised. Why don't think he was at his very low at that moment? I have seen very good pics of Fernando Alonso with footballers like Alfonso Pérez and Michel Salgado and sportsmen and I can conclude he is a legit 171 cm tall guy (no less than 170.5 in any case). And Hamilton is taller than him. Hamilton is also very close to Oxlade and Walcott and no less than Cruise

Lewis Hamilton is listed almost and inch shorter, and from doing the research on his page, it's pretty clear he's no more than his listing. I'm confused.
Editor Rob: there doesn't look much between them...whether Hamilton is gaining anything more than a small fraction is harder to tell.

Piqué was measured barefoot but it's an early measurement. It can happen with the very tall people. In Periscope Piqué said I think I am nowadays at 194 cm tall, saying that it was taller than before.

Extremely gifted, cheeky player. Wouldn't be surprised if his long arms help him with balance, acceleration (lever) and quick change of directions. His arm length to height ratio (182cm/173cm = 1.05) seems to be pretty close to that of Bruce Lee's --> 183/171 = 1.07
The Da Vinci ratio is 1:1.
Contrast that with boxing legend Rocky Marciano --> 173/178 = 0.97 who made the most of his short arms by honing his inside fighting skills.
The great Ali had a 198/191 = 1.036 ratio

No, they don't say his height, they skip that part, justjust after measuring him he is measured the armspan saying 182 cm

@5ft 9.25 how do you know Neymar was measured 175 cm? Was there a video and he was told that figure?

@MD
Neymar has a bad posture.
MD said on 17/Mar/16
Huh? Picture down the page, shows that if anything that difference between him and Messi is less than currently what's listed. There is no way it's more than that.

At his first medical of Barcelona he got measured 175cms. Rob, you can't list him 5ft 8.25 and Messi 5ft 6.5 at the same time, this is just "wishful thinking",- cause you might favor Leo? ;)

yes adriano is 173.3cm in the medical check video so that would put neymar between 174-175cm

He is slightly taller than Adriano who has been measured in a video in 173,3 cm
plus said on 5/Dec/15
I think he is around 174 cm most of the day. (for example 173,5 is 174 cm in practical effects and no 173 cm)

Could you do Manuel Neuer pleasee Robbb
M said on 3/Jun/15
Yes, that's is true that he is 1.73m.

MD, also look at him with Kobe... He looks almost an head shorter! 5'9 is obviously a big joke for him and 5'8 flat, as you say, is probably the most he might be!

Honestly, there isn't much to glean from these given the angle and Neymar leaning so much. But, I do think it shows how silly the 5'9" listings were.
MD said on 25/Mar/15
That's what I was thinking, a flat 5'8" for Neymar.
MD said on 23/Mar/15
Rob,

Here is a picture of Neymar (second from right) with Messi (far left):

Is it more likely that Neymar is more a flat 5'8", or is Messi currently underlisted? I mean, if they stood side-by-side this is ever-so-slightly less than the currently 1.75" between the two, right? I'm thinking Neymar is more a flat 5'8".
[Editor Rob: there can look around 1.5 between them generally, 5ft 8.25 is the most I think Neymar can typically look, 5ft 8 flat is of course just as possible.]

I think it came out SANTOS with 20 years he was really being listed as 173cm and 174cm
BBH said on 14/Mar/15
Had to pleasure of seeing Neymar upclose last year! 173 is close enough to his height. I'm a strong 5'10 at evening (179 cm). Nice guy btw!
