Height183, No more than 6 foot ? Have you seen him play ? He edges every other listed 6 footer, hes a clear 184cm guy.
Height183 said on 15/Mar/15
I think 6'0'' for him is fine and more than enough. No more than 6'0''.
Rory said on 4/Mar/15
Rob, do you rly think 6'1 Ronaldo is a full inch taller than him ? To me there's only ever a half inch difference, i rly think 6'0.5 is fair for Gareth, same height as 184.1 measured benzema.
[Editor Rob: it's not impossible for a little over 6ft for him.]
Appe 6' 0.5 said on 24/Feb/15
@teej clearly you haven t observed him well... The range we can discuss about this player is between 6ft and 6ft 1
Rory said on 24/Feb/15
180cm ? Have a laugh..the guys minimum 184cm. I think 6'0.5 is the perfect fit for Bale.
Teej said on 22/Feb/15
Doesnt look 6 foot to me. how can this guy be listed as 183cm and ronaldo be 185cm. ronaldo is 185cm yes, but bale looks like a 5'11. easily more than a 2cm difference between the two. @james 185cm i agree with you he looks 180cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Feb/15
"Gareth Bales's height is 6ft 0½in (184cm)"

Doesn't look any less than that.
Appe 6' 0.5 said on 7/Feb/15
@rob don t you think it s better to put him up at 184cm? I really can t see him 183 flat, even at night
178 Guy said on 2/Feb/15
Always thought he was the same as cristiano lol, think he could be at least 6'0.5 I guess
Appe4 said on 29/Jan/15
Ronaldo 185,5 Bale 184
james said on 22/Jan/15
Am i the only who see's that bale is literally only 1cm shorter than ronaldo? Bale is at least 184cm
Appe4 said on 21/Jan/15
@hulk if I had to judge after all this photos I would say 184-185 for him. It s clear he grew after 18 yo ( an inch at least)!

184/185cm he's a weak 6'1
Rory said on 1/Dec/14
Yh no way hes just 6 ft flat. Edges Benzema who is 6'0.25/6'0.5, and about a centimeter shorter than Ronaldo, pretty sure Bale would be 6'0.75.
Joe joe said on 29/Nov/14
For everyone asking about Iker casillas. He is listed at 6'1 on most computer games but if any of you bother to go to the actual Real Madrid website. You will see they have him listed at 5'11 along with Xavi alonso. I agree bale can look a weak 6'1 and I'm sure he is at some point in the day but I would put him at no more than 184. He always seems to give away a cm or two along side Ronaldo to me.
appe4 said on 23/Nov/14
it is one of the few cases where I am pretty sure Rob is downgrading; too many photos evidence the fact he is almost 184 (could be also a weak 185). The difference between him and Ronaldo is very low.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Nov/14
Rio is a legit 6'3" guy, see him with Snoop.
Gaz said on 8/Nov/14
Bale with Rio https://twitter.com/GarethBale11/status/529771277637406720/photo/1 6'3 for Rio Rob?
[Editor Rob: that's what Rio claims, 6ft 3]
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/Nov/14
184cm looks closer
Josh said on 30/Oct/14
Real 6'0 guy btw casillas is 5´10.5 (179cm)
Appe4 said on 15/Oct/14
Rob, do you still think 183cm is the best for him? I think he is underestimated by you. To me is clear that he is almost 184, maybe 185. I say this because I watch a lot of real madrid matches...
Elias said on 9/Oct/14
He is 6ft1 range for sure, next to Iker Casillas he looks much taller than 6ft0
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Oct/14
looks 6ft0½-6ft1 range
Max said on 15/Sep/14
I agree with you except for iker, he is slightly shorter than xabi, and was hardly taller than Di maria. I think iker 181cm. xabi was once listed 182.4cm on real madrid's site, so i can believe that.
Bale 184.5cm
Xabi alonso 182.4cm
Iker 181cm
Calvin said on 3/Sep/14
Looks a good bit taller than Casillas and Xabi in the photo below, I'll go with 185 for Bale and 182.5 for Casillas and Xabi.
Fredd said on 29/Aug/14
@hulk iker is prob 180, but alonso looks a solid 6! At least 182cm for him
Balrog said on 29/Aug/14
Rob, how tall you think Iker Casillas is? He's been listed at 6'1" since ever but he struggles to look even 6'0", I think he's 181-182 range
[Editor Rob: yeah he can look as short as 5ft 11 a lot of time, not a chance he's 6ft 1.]
HULK said on 29/Aug/14
Iker cassilas and xabi alonso are 180/182
Gareth bale 184
Amaze said on 28/Aug/14
@bran and 1.85m I agree. oh well he got lucky
Max said on 27/Aug/14
Click Here clear 6'1! and they are all wearing the same boots!
Bran said on 21/Aug/14
@Daniel
I think it was in cohesion to why he filled out late also
Daniel said on 18/Aug/14
He grew a lot between 16 and 18
johnmarco said on 9/Aug/14
Bale was taller than 6'1 dempsey, now i think dempsey might be in the 183cm range so that's why, but even even with that, i think bale is 184.5cm(weak 6'1) or 184cm for the least
Bran said on 1/Aug/14
@Amaze
He was and that was near his 16th birthday; Click Here
He must of grew a good few inch at 16-17 range
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 27/Jul/14
@Amaze
Watched him early on. Pretty sure he was 5'11" around 17. This is consistent with initial height listings as well.
Amaze said on 26/Jul/14
I heard he was 5'6 at 15. I wonder how tall he was at 17 and 18? But hes so lucky he hit 6'0 :) lucky guy
kaplaaa said on 6/Jul/14
@1.85m 83kg put it this way, I doubt a 6"0.5 guy would edge out Bale. He is 184cm for sure.
You comment on this page quite alot, maybe you have a problem with upgrading Bale so much that you ignore the facts.
Appe4 said on 13/May/14
with 183.5 cm arbeloa Click Here
gian92 said on 2/May/14
he deserves an upgrade because near xabi alonso is 1 cm taller , for me bale is 184 cm
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 26/Apr/14
@Appe4
I would say Torres.
Appe4 said on 26/Apr/14
In your opinion is taller gareth or nando torres? to me they seem both 1,5 cm under CR7
mike 212 said on 24/Apr/14
Bale is at least 184cm! Madrid and bayern munich have the tallest players in europe and bale always looks tall around them. He can even look 6'2 with his build. Im going with 184cm
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 24/Apr/14
@chrisssss
I don't know why you fabricated several things I said. Anyway, is it so ridiculous to believe 1.83 m listed Ramos is 1.82 m? Perhaps they rounded to the nearest inch. I know they're probably measured, but as to whether websites are presenting correct values is up for debate which is what we're doing here. Referring to your photo, I know they're standing next to each other, but is that all we require? They look about the same height, but we're arguing in terms of centimetres so the picture is terrible. I think Bale is as tall as listed, if you think otherwise, the burden of proof is on you. You've steadily tried to upgrade Bale by a full inch with nothing to back it up.
MD said on 24/Apr/14
@chrisssss,

You really need to calm down, already. You're doing this same thing on C. Ronaldo. Throwing a fit isn't going to ingratiate you with anyone. Perhaps given that nearly everyone disagrees with you on both pages should make you re-evaluate your opinion, instead of putting your hands over your ears like a child and yelling.
chrisssss said on 23/Apr/14
@kaplaaa im really beginning to agree with you on that statement
chrisssss said on 23/Apr/14
@1.85 m how is ramos 182? And according to you, arbeloa, casimero, bartra, benzema, ramos, zidane, higuin, and diego, are all not above 182cm......so they are allll errors mhhmm, makes perfect sense, you do realise they MESURED right? What you think they all lie about they're height? And how was that a terrible picture, they are both standing next to each other. You know what nvrm, according to you everyone not taller than bale 5'11. Makes sense -.-
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 23/Apr/14
@chrisssss
Ramos - 1.82 m. Terrible picture. Stop using the word proof.
chrisssss said on 22/Apr/14
When ramos joined RM he was measured 183.4cm. Here he is with gareth bale! Click Here bale is 1cm shorter than 186cm cr7(185.8) so that would make bale 185cm(184.8) and he really does look it! And if you want more proof, he was the sane height as 6'1 zidane!
chrisssss said on 18/Apr/14
Was taller 183cm bartra again this is more proof... At least 184cm for bale
Bran said on 1/Apr/14
To be fair to Rob he has got this listing spot on, he looks more 6ft1 proportonally due to his build and etc but seeing him in photos like the spurs team line up ones and he looks as listed.Ignore the Ronaldo photos, an inch fluctuates, 6ft is fair well done Rob.
sss said on 31/Mar/14
If Bale is 183, Xabi is 181-182 and Iker 180. Iker never looked more than 181 for me either. Ronaldo is the really the best example of a 6'1 guy, dead on 185
JoJo said on 25/Mar/14
I think Bale is a strong six footer, a barefoot 183, while Ronaldo is a barefoot 185.
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 16/Mar/14
@kaplaaa
Stop insisting on making things personal with me and deal with facts. Ronaldo has 2 cm on Bale, and Bale simply looks a 6-footer. Ronaldo is officially listed as, looks, and has been measured with a laser at 1.85 m. I've been watching Bale for Wales and Real recently and he just doesn't look over 6'0" as listed, he hasn't his whole career.
kaplaaa said on 15/Mar/14
@1.85m83kg
Bale is over 6 ft, it's clear Ronaldo who is a proven 6"1, doesn't have a full inch on him. He deserves an upgrade, all people do on this site is try and downgrade people because of their own insecurities
1.85 m, 83 kg said on 14/Mar/14
@chrissss
Stop the story speculation and upgrading. Bale - 1.83 m, Ronaldo - 1.85 m, Benzema - 1.82 m.
chrisssss said on 8/Mar/14
A good example is edison cavani, he looks exactly the same height as bale and they,are almost the same build, and cavani is listed 184cm, i would put bale at 185cm(184.5) making him just about 6'1, he looks 1cm shorter than 186cm(185.8) ronaldo
WalkingTall 6ft3.25 said on 4/Mar/14
...another angle and the difference is even smaller,still Ronaldo has the edge Click Here
WalkingTall 6ft3.25 said on 4/Mar/14
Bale next to Ronaldo in this team photo Click Here about 6 feet seems spot on for him.
chrissss said on 28/Feb/14
@bosnia, for some reason i think his agent just gave his height, because in an interview, he said that his physical was rushed, so stuff like his eye color they had forgot to take, so i would assume he or is agent just guessed, and i totally agree! he never looks below any 6fters, always looks taller, and can even look like a solid 6'2 guy! ROB!this listing needs an update
chrissss said on 28/Feb/14
185cm, slightly shorter than cr7, and can often look the same, and is taller than 184cm benzema, bale is very tall and well built
Jamal said on 3/Feb/14
He is very very close in height to Ronaldo, who should be 186cm.
jeremy said on 2/Feb/14
Rob, he is about 185 cm. Some players have wrong listings on their club sites. Like van Persie, he is listed 6 ft but he is like 6'2
Appe4 said on 30/Jan/14
Clearly 185-186 range player
songo said on 31/Dec/13
@Bosina
I don't think any sort of sports game is going to give a good reflection of someone's height. Way to much happening plus people wearing boots .
Bosnia said on 8/Dec/13
@chrisssss

I believe too that he is 6'1" or at least 184 cm. I was looking last champions leauge game where he playedn nand couldn't believe he is "only" 183 cm tall. But, I'm wondering where that 6 ft listing from Real Madrid site come from...

He looks almost the same height as moratta(188cm) he's def 185cm! Onli a cm shorter than cr7(186cm) he also looked taller than alonso, benzema and arbeloa who are all 6 feet

Xabi Alonso is listed 182,7 cm on Real M. website and Bale at 183 but if you look at dailymail article about Bale shooting comercial and doing test for Adidas there is picture on set of Alonso and Bale, standing straight next to each other anf Bale is taller at least 1 cm.
David said on 11/Nov/13
A 6 foot friend of mine poses for photos in the same way Bale does in the photo above and body-wise looks exactly the same. Typical athletic 6 footer.
Late 187cm said on 4/Nov/13
Just to take this totally off topic...

Barack and Prince William

Click Here

Barack is more in the foreground here, but does Prince William really look like he has a strong 2-3inches on 185cm Barack?

I find it hard to believe that Aaron Ramsey is 5'11"

Bale is 183-184cm for me. I don't think he could be below 183cm.
Arch Stanton said on 29/Oct/13
@Jordy. Click Here
Arch Stanton said on 29/Oct/13
@Jordy. Wenger looked a bit shorter than Prince William. Granted he generally looks a strong 6'3" but he isn't 6'4".
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 28/Oct/13
@ Jorky - Id say a strong 6'2 For Wenger(188-189cm) and about 3 inch difference. So Ramsey would be about 180-181cm. I also thought he was about 5'10 but 5'11 area max is possible.
glynny 182 said on 27/Oct/13
looks a touch taller rob even thou i agree with most(not all) of your listings is 184 a possibility?
[Editor Rob: a fraction over 6 foot isn't improbable but someone said he was supposed to have been measured six foot]
jordydecke said on 23/Oct/13
Looking at that photo below of Arsene Wenger and Ramsey, how tall would you say Ramsey was? I always had him down as about 5'10ish. I'm pretty sure Wenger is that tall, I've stood about 9 foot away from him and he's definitely in the 6'4 region.
truth said on 15/Oct/13
183cm for Garteh sounds right.
Balrog said on 10/Oct/13
He doesn't look 6'2", can pull off 6'1" yes, I could buy 184cm for him but that's it.
Emil said on 8/Oct/13
chrisss says on 5/Oct/13
Rob this makes no sense, benzema is listed 184cm and bale is taller than him by at least 2cm, and when standing next to 186cm cr7, he looks 2cm shorter, i'd say benzema is really is 182cm and bale is 184cm, he always looks above 6ft

So 1 cm more/less is what that makes no sense to you? Its barely noticeable. Bale can be both 183-184 cm but you're kinda hysteric lol
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Oct/13
"Gareth Bale's height is 6ft 0.5in (184cm)"

Can look 6ft2
rkc_cat said on 8/Oct/13
@chrisss: Benzema is 181cm (I've even seen him listed at a ridiculous 187cm!), just barely taller than 180cm Casillas (who somehow is listed at 185cm but is at least an inch shorter than 183cm Valdes). Then it makes sense; Bale is about 2 cm taller than Benzema and about 2cm shorter than 185cm CR. 6' for Bale is spot on, though I agree that sometimes he can give the illusion of being taller.
johnny said on 8/Oct/13
Click Here and about ramsey being 181 cm. click the link and you'll see he isn't. wenger is a tall guy. 6'2'' for sure. some even say he might be 6'4''. a lot of players state their youth heights from when they were 16-18 and rising stars.
johnny said on 7/Oct/13
I think the 186 cm some sites give him are accurate.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Oct/13
@Anon, yes of course he isn't 6'2"-6'3" but he does give the illusion of it in this photograph in my opinion. It's the long skinny limbs and long face I think which give this illusion.
chrisss said on 5/Oct/13
Rob this makes no sense, benzema is listed 184cm and bale is taller than him by at least 2cm, and when standing next to 186cm cr7, he looks 2cm shorter, i'd say benzema is really is 182cm and bale is 184cm, he always looks above 6ft
Arch Stanton said on 2/Oct/13
Funny you say that Tim because he gives a 6'2.5"-6'3" impression in this photo IMO for some reason. His legs here look comparable to Rob's 189 challenger.
Tim said on 29/Sep/13
Looking at him I think I am a little taller than him and I am 1.84 m
wenger said on 29/Sep/13
check him out next to fellow welshman aaron ramsey (181cm) they look the same height
183 for Bale is maximum
johnny said on 27/Sep/13
My cousin who is 6'0'' has a fan picture with him and Bale had nearly 2 inches on him. 6'1.5'' I'd say. I think he's like Van Persie. Gets also listed as 6'0'' but is actually 6'2''.
eddyw78 said on 27/Sep/13
Good inch shorter than Ronaldo who is a strong 6ft 1in. Yeah I would go for 6 foot.
jordydecke said on 27/Sep/13
as for spurs having him as 5'11, I'm that height and in every photo or video I've seen he looks as if he'd have an inch and half on me easily.
jordydecke said on 27/Sep/13
Van Persie (horrible man with no loyalty) is a legit 6'1 I saw him several years ago at a signing event. I think Bale claims 6'1 but I think his slim build makes him look taller, 6'0 is a good estimate. I remember reading that Tony Adams went to scout him for Arsenal years and years ago and said that he was a tiny little fella, so clearly he must have grown a lot. Can't find the exact article where it says this.
Joe joe said on 26/Sep/13
he's on the madrid website at 1m83cm. they do barefoot lazer measurments so it's safe to say thats accurate.
The Exorcist said on 25/Sep/13
I think he's one of the tallest looking six-footers I've ever seen.

@Louis: yeah, I think Modric would be in 5'6.5 - 5'7" range.
cole said on 24/Sep/13
Good to see him get a page. I wouldn't go over 183 cm for Bale, so personally I think this listing is good. And about Van Persie: he's got to be a little taller than 6'1 flat. 186-187 cm range I think is a good shout for him, wouldn't you say Rob?
afka said on 24/Sep/13
6 ft.maybe a litle over
Petrolhead said on 24/Sep/13
Rob he was billed as 5ft 11in before he moved to Madrid. On the Spurs official site.

Support your local club, I'm sure they need it much more than Arsenal.
Late 187cm said on 20/Sep/13
I thought he might have been pushing 6'1(185/186cm). But using Ronaldo as a 6'1 benchmark I think 183cm is pretty accurate. I don't think he's any lower.
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 19/Sep/13
Always seems tall to me. Proof that 183cm with the right build is definetly fairly tall.
Balrog said on 18/Sep/13
I guess him at 183-184. Don't see much of him but at first he does looks like a solid 6footer.
kaplaaa said on 18/Sep/13
Solid 6ft maybe 6"0.25 but he holds excellent posture which can give off a 6"1 vibe.
miko said on 18/Sep/13
He's 183/184 range definitely.

His build gives a tall illusion as well, like Ronaldo's does.
Ryan said on 18/Sep/13
Some sources have him as much as 186cm which is far too high. He's a tall man but not quite that tall. 183cm is much more accurate.
Louis said on 18/Sep/13
Rob, what's your guess for Luka Modrić? 5'7?

pataan19 said on 17/Sep/13
Hmmm not so sure about this listing Rob. 185 Cristiano ronaldo had a good 4-5 cms on him in the photo recently posted of the two shaking hands. What do you think Rob, maybe 181 for him might be a better shout!
Arch Stanton said on 17/Sep/13
Good choice of article, sure to get traffic. Yeah, I think he looks a fair 6 ft. Seems a nice lad to boot. There's something a bit animation like about him facially though, he seems to have an unusually long jaw.
Raj said on 17/Sep/13
Never looked 6' - always looked 6'0.5"+. In training with madrid you could see when Bale and Ronaldo wore the same shoes, the height difference was negligible.
Bran said on 17/Sep/13
Rob what a legend for putting him on, did you find this decision easy or did you spend a lot of time thinking about it ?
[Editor Rob: I think it's a safe bet he's around this mark]
