Hi Rob, how tall was Claude Makelele? He is listed as 174 and on other sites as 170 cm.
With Evra Click Here
With Jose Mourinho Click Here
With Ribery Click Here
Claude always gave me an impression of 5ft 6-7 range, there is about zero chance he's 174cm

Definitely 5'7. Maybe a litte more, but nothing less.

How tall is the guy next to him (phillip lahm) also listed 5'7
For ribery id say a solid 170, or 171 in football boots
Gomez can look over 6ft 3 at times.

183 is very unlikely for Coupet,as he was listed both 179 and 181.I mean he was probably measured as an athlete to get this listing.I would be surprised if there wasn't at least one of the 2 marks that didn't stem from a measurement
Cris the bald guy next to him is listed at 183,he looks at least a good inch taller
Well maybe Coupet is 183 in shoes?
As for Ribéry I reckon he generally looks around 5'7 whether it's 169-70 or 170-1 is the debatable range imo

@Johnson: only problem is we can’t go off what someone says they are because it may not be barefoot height. If someone like Ibra claims 196 when he’s 194-194.5 or Kobe Bryant or MJ claim 6’6 when they’re 6’4.5 or 6’5 that throws it off

@Tunman my friend. Coupet told me he is 1.83 in twitter

Any chance for a weak 5'7 next to 179 Grégory Coupet?He could be 5'6.5-6.75"very similar to our friend G.
Also how tall would you say Florent Malouda is?Here he looks only an inch taller than Ribéry but overall I thought he could be more around 175.Got a 184 listing once!(and still gets 181 on many sites).
I wouldn't go lower than 5ft 7 for Franck, from all I've seen. I'm sure at times he can look a bit under, but other times I think can look a bit over 5ft 7. I wouldn't have guessed Malouda less than 5ft 9 either, he held up well with other chelsea players back in the day.

Rob what would you say about Valbuena's height ? I'm sure he is less than the 167 cm he is listed at
Really can't see 167cm, 165 would be closer.

5'6 at best

@Rob what do you think about this kind of people?
There are people who appear taller to what they measure just due bone structure. A minority. Most of people standing tall they gain a punch.
But this select group, some of us when walking around due to bone structure are in our medical height without necessity to walking with militar posture
But most of people appear shorter than us and when standing tall gain a punch.
There are those who are like Stallone or Tom Cruise - they hold a natural standing height that is close to their measured height.
Then you have guys like Paul Bettany, who never seems to stand well...
The more fit and supple you are, the easier it should be for your body to hold a height closer to measured height.

Hey big Rob is 171 possible for him?
It's what he was first given, though why would Bayern put him at 170cm, seems strange to 'downgrade' him if he wasn't around that mark.

171 cm taller than 170 Lahm.
