Well, this guy looks a legit 6ft1½ so I think it’s arguable that Mark is a fraction above 6ft1

Rob, is he taller in person than a guy like Mark Gatiss?

I’m looking at both photos with you and I get a similar impression. This guy’s head is larger and he’s heavier so maybe that’s why
Editor Rob
On the pitch always looked about 6ft 1 range, but in person a big 6ft 1 range, but then I remember Gatiss looking a big 6ft 1 range too (albeit I feel his shoe advantage helped him).
I would not be surprised with john measuring taller under a stadiometer, though of course the difference may well not be a full half inch.

Listing seems believable.

@ 185cmJeff - Many thanks, I wish West Ham the best of luck too! Don't worry about the Man City match, things will get better for you very soon!


171cm Nik!

He does look a solid 6ft1½, might even reach 6ft1¾ on a good day. Mid-morning probably hits 6ft2

Nice to meet you Gladstone COYI I haven’t been yet to the London stadium I use to have a season ticket at Upton Park! Also nice to hear from you Nik, good luck this season, being a West Ham fan I’m really optimistic for this season, but you never know what your going to get in football.

@ Gladstone Screwer & 185cmJeff - 👍👍! Good luck in the coming season!

COYL, (171cm) Nik. I'm not far off average!

This is a great back to back photograph of Rob and John Hartson!
Editor Rob
He actually had said do I want to do a 'hammers' fist pose like a couple of guys in front of me had done, but I didn't think it was great for height the way he was standing for it - as a fan I'd have done that fist pose, but of course I said to do a back to back, which I think was a good photo of him.

@185cmJeff. Nice one Jeff, COYI indeed. Regards, (186cm) Gladstone.
6'' 2" for John.

Wow he look 6’2 in that picture. Why some pictute don’t have that compare line,rob
Editor Rob
I now do mugshot height comparison's in short 25-35 second clips. I did do One for John.

I eventually planned to do them with the mugshot lines behind myself/actor, since I tested it 2 years ago on here with a couple of examples.

But I didn't think it would work well on the site because I would have to upload a version with background removed to be able to make a smooth transition from the photo to the photo+mugshot lines behind.

I always want the original photo ops on to be shown as they were taken.

We had John at West Ham in the nineties, I remember him being touted at 6'2". Top player was big John.

Hey rob could you compare this guy with mark Selby but with the lines? He looks almost 6’2

The average guess is 6’1.38” (6 foot 1 3/8!) after 6 votes!
Onabill said on 21/Jul/19
Rob does he have a low eye level or an average eye level for his height? I see him more of a 6 ft 1 1/4 guy, he could even get measured at 186 CM on the dot
Editor Rob
I'd have said average or slightly above for his height range, though he is raising his eyes a fraction in that shot.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 21/Jul/19
He’s barely recognisable from his playing days
Christian 6'5 3/8" said on 21/Jul/19
It's uncommon, but I wouldn't go as far as to say it's rare.
Andrea said on 20/Jul/19
Well, he certainly seems more than just 6'1 flat here...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Jul/19
Rob, what made you go with this?

He’s been listed 6ft1 throughout his career. Maybe a rare case of a guy being taller than his club listings
Editor Rob
On the pitch he never really seemed that tall a guy, maybe due to his frame and I did think before seeing him that he'd be about 6ft 1...but you know, when he stands tall up close, I felt he can clear 6ft 1 flat.

186. ..If there is any upcoming movie about Kratos (god of war )this guy should be in it .

Anywhere from 186-187
