Thanks for the quick reply Rob, but it seems like I wasn't specific enough in my first comment.
I was mainly talking about young white males living in the West (Europe & the US).

Would 171cm be considered short there?
Editor Rob
If just talking about younger guys in Europe, then a lot more people would class 171 within short range considering the average in many Western countries for young guys is over 175, quite a few 178-181 range.
Gyouguy said on 23/Apr/22
Hey Rob, quick question; would a height of 171cm (close to Coutinho's height) be considered short for a guy?
Editor Rob
in Brazil, no...

in the UK the average is 5ft 9 so 171 is low average range.

Some might call you short though.

Coutinho was always listed 171 at Liverpool so 5ft 7 and 1/4 is much better
recapa said on 20/Sep/21
coutinho always looked 2m shorter tahn his best friend neymar :171 for coutinho and 173 for neymar.
Zach Catselbow said on 3/Sep/21
Rob, out of these options, what do you reckon Coutinho’s night height is?

A. 171.5
B. 171
C. 170.5
D. 170
Editor Rob
B maybe is arguable
RJT said on 15/Aug/21
If I claim "hair height" like Coutinho and Pique's case, then I can be 191cm afternoon.
RJT said on 15/Aug/21
This one is inflated with hair similar with Pique, take off 1/2" and another quarter for afternoon height and that makes him perfect 5'7.

Btw why is there only Barcelona players with stadiometer pictures? Is it only Barca who released such pictures public?
Zach Catselbow said on 27/Jul/21
Rob, how tall would you list Arthur Melo at? In my opinion, he looks about strong 5’7” range with 5’7.5” Coutinho. Maybe near 5’7.25”.
Editor Rob
yeah, can look very similar to Coutinho so 171ish
H711 said on 14/Aug/20
Hey Rob, can you see him being the same height as the average votes (170.4 cm)?
Editor Rob
Maybe later in the day he drops to that.
Stanley said on 26/Jun/20
I think he is 5'8".

Hey Rob, is it wrong to measure while Busting a Gut?
In the evening I am 183cm, "Busting a Gut" like Coutinho. It adds 6mm for me.
Editor Rob
For some people the difference can be 2-3mm, others 5-7mm might be possible
Ignacio said on 24/Feb/20
Looks like a solid 171cm guy. I, myself mesure 171 before bed and like 172.5 in the morning. I believe Coutinho's case is similar
Nik said on 16/Jan/20
I wonder what Brendan Rodgers would claim for himself!
Deep Purple said on 16/Jan/20
He is 170 cm on the wingspan ruler
TheHawk said on 14/Jan/20
5’7 no more

Article came out about “ 5’6 ” Coutinho having to wear child size Bayern shirt.

I’ve got to say I actually thought Coutinho was around 5’6.5 until I saw his page here, surprised he’s this tall, I’m only an inch taller and have to wear medium/large so just shows how ridiculous this article is.
Nik said on 1/Nov/19
I would love to see a photograph of Philippe and my good self!
Valois 2.0 said on 6/Sep/19
If Neymar is 5'8, Coutinho can't be no more than 5'7 flat, there's a solid one inch difference between then.
Valois 2.0 said on 21/Aug/19
He got loaned to Bayern this season. As German teams are known to give precise measurements, we could have a better look of him. Do you think those measurements are made after practice, Rob?
Editor Rob
I think many players turn up in the morning for physicals and medical checks, rather than say afternoon...though that may not always be the case.
Valois 2.0 said on 2/Jul/19
I just saw they walk together at the end of the first half today. Coutinho is keeping his head down but still edges Arthur by a fraction. I'm gonna mantain my 5'7.25 guess for Melo then.
Valois 2.0 said on 2/Jul/19
Strange, Arthur Melo is supposed to be a fraction shorter than Coutinho if we going by his Barcelona listings, but sometimes Melo looks taller. Maybe it's the camera angle.
Valois said on 31/May/19
Artur Melo must be around 5'7.25 then.
soccer said on 12/Mar/19
He always looks so short i think 5'7.5 is right
Editor Rob said on 25/Apr/18
I looked at the Medical centre clip and noticed they look to be using a seca 264 stadiometer.

Click Here - Page 58.

Now Seca class this stadiometer (it costs £450, so I'm sure the NFL or NBA could afford to buy one ;) ) as a 'Premium Precision' rather than the 'basic precision' for the £70 model.

If they used the automatic calibration with the 0.8m rod that is provided, then I'd say there was little room for error.

BUT, there is an option to manually calibrate using an object of known height (like a tape or height ruler), so that introduces a room for potential error.

All these measurements from clubs are based on the assumption it was calibrated exactly to the mm...I'd just bear in mind there's a small possibility of a calibration error, although I think it's probably safe enough to assume the measurements seem quite accurate.

Of course in some cases they won't be - like Yerry Mina and not flattening a player's hairstyle.

Looks this video at 24:25, the guy with him is 5ft10, Coutinho looks 3inches shorter at least.
Khaled Taban said on 20/Apr/18
Coutinho is 5'7.75" ,Barcelona listed him 172cm exactly .
Original said on 28/Jan/18
Coutinho is 171, Messi 169.5.

Interesting to see. He looks 5'7" flat here. Messi seems taller, and that's strange.
Johnson said on 25/Jan/18
@ozzym9 no problem it was just an informal speech
Ozzym9 said on 25/Jan/18
@johnson its what he was listed at when I checked online as he doesn’t have a page on here
Johnson said on 24/Jan/18
Lallana is not 5'8!!! hahaha
Ozzym9 said on 24/Jan/18
What is lallana real height rob ?
Editor Rob
Could be 5ft 9 range, but would need to look at him more.
Ozzym9 said on 23/Jan/18
Rob Sadio Mane looks is 5’6 look at him with 5’8 Lallana

Editor Rob
I'm not so sure Adam is as short as 5ft 8, he seems taller than that.
lee168cm said on 19/Jan/18
@jjj Miks pic isn't very accurate just look at photos of sturridge and sadio on the field together i see 2 inches at the most beyween them but at least 4 between sadio and emre
tom said on 15/Jan/18
if he was measured at 172cm, why is the listing different?
Editor Rob
If going by lunch or afternoon height, he would shrink another few mm's.
JJJ said on 15/Jan/18
@lee168cm: Look at @Mik's picture of Can, Sturridge & Sane. How is Can 6ft and Sturridge '5ft 10 at the most and that's a stretch' - they're the same height?
Johnson said on 12/Jan/18
Barcelona website lists Coutinho 1,72 and 78 kg

If we hadn't watched the video, people would say, they exaggerate his height, Barcelona inflates the player!! data is wrong, he has been measured 1,70 but they list him 1,72

But we saw the video, and Barcelona lists the player exactly the medical height he marked. You can argue that he is breathing in and it adds 3 mm, or whatever but the website lists the player correctly
Mik said on 11/Jan/18
Rob, this is a good photo of Sadie Mane with 5’11Sturridge

How tall does he look here ?
Editor Rob
Sade might be in 5ft 8 range, though for some reason has 'on pitch' proportions which suggest between 5ft 7-8, but he does seem more 5ft 8ish range.
Canson said on 11/Jan/18
@Revisionist: prob 171 evening. 173 or a hair under out of bed if not full 173. So maybe 171 or hair over at a low. He’s strong 5’7” prob
Canson said on 11/Jan/18
@Johnson: I think the 171.9 prob would be his real height vs 172.2 he would’ve measured that time of the day but that’s more 2 hours or so. He could be 171 at his lowest but I don’t think below that mark.
Christian-6'5 3/8" said on 11/Jan/18
5'7.25" at most
Tallish89 said on 11/Jan/18
Strong 5'7 guy
Johnson said on 11/Jan/18
Some guys here have the tantrum

They fantasized with Coutinho standing tall with the nurse lowering the bar and... marking 170.2!!

But they do not face the truth when has been revealed. Coutinho measured 171.9 without gut and 172.2 breathing in. (A legit measurement)

Accept the fact guys. The argument with Coutinho is valid everywhere in the website
Johnson said on 11/Jan/18
@Revisionist I get the low in 4 hours even if I do not go out

If I go outside in 2-3 hours I am at my low

Even, I am taller before bed that late evening

You can see how it variates the height during the day. Here:

It's Rob's. You only have to discount 3 mm of the error of the old stadiometer
Revisionist said on 11/Jan/18
Assuming that I had a full night's rest, I don't reach my absolute low until at least 9 hrs, sometimes even 10 hrs even if I spend most of the day sitting (which is worse for you than standing), and I'm not anywhere near his shape.

170cm flat for this guy is probably his evening height.
Johnson said on 10/Jan/18
@Canson I followed by streaming the details about his day and read it. It is in the news, all dates and details

He was appointed at 7:30 am at Hospital de Barcelona to get analytics

At 9:30-10:00 he was cited in Sports medical center to do all the cardio works, height and weight routine, armspan, effort tests, etc. It is called "Ciutat Esportiva de Sant Joan Despí". It is in that place where Barcelona players are measured every year.

Did he wake up at Hospital??? NO, So 0% chance of being measured 2 hours/ 2 hours and a half after waking up

Then he was measured minimum 3 hours/ 3 hours and a half... possibly 4 hours

Rob and I watched the video measuring, the bar pushes up from 171.9 to 172.2 when he breathes in. So it is not an extreme "Bust a Gut", but 0.3 extra cm
Canson said on 10/Jan/18
@Rob: Busting a Gut earlier in the day would mean he’s less than 171.5 at a low. Wouldn’t Busting a Gut mean he is really around 171.5 at a norm? Meaning he’s prob more 171 at a low?
Editor Rob
all depends just how long he was up...I think 7.5 seems reasonable enough
Canson said on 10/Jan/18
@Johnson: how do you know when he was appointed to the hospital? And 3 hours out of bed isn’t necessarily a low for him. Most don’t reach it until minimum 6 hours. (5-7 hrs). He may or may not be this height honestly. There are no definitives
Canson said on 10/Jan/18
@Johnson: how do you know when he was appointed to the hospital?
Johnson said on 10/Jan/18
So I agree with Rob with 171.5 evening low for Coutinho
Johnson said on 10/Jan/18
@Rob what I meant is that he is not measured within a couple of hours of waking up, but 3-4 hours after waking up

So he is not shorter than 171.4-171.5 on his minimum
Editor Rob
yes, it might be 3 hours...
Johnson said on 10/Jan/18

Coutinho was appointed at 7:30 am for analytics in Hospital

At 9:30-10:00 am at Ciudad Deportiva (medical center at the club) to medical tests (height, weight etc)

So he was measured at last 3 hours after waking up!!!
Editor Rob
for me then the 5ft 7.5 figure I think is fair.

Can u add Sadie mane rob ?
Editor Rob
how did mane hold up against salah and coutinho?
lasla said on 9/Jan/18
Rob, at night do you think that he is closer to 171cm than 172cm?
Editor Rob
considering these are usually done within a couple of hours of being up, it's likely to shrink another cm or so by teatime.
ma said on 9/Jan/18
flat 5 ft7
1 inc shorter than Neymar
Johnson said on 9/Jan/18
Johnson was right!! This is for the haters
jjj said on 9/Jan/18
So are we saying he wakes up at 5ft 7.5 and goes down to a strong 5'6 at night?
louis said on 9/Jan/18
@DruceLee sorry but he is not only 170... look picture of Messi with Bartomeu and now Coutinho with Bartomeu.
Because Messi is not 170cm. 167-168 range. Maybe 169 in the morning
Ally183 said on 9/Jan/18
Rob dont you think that their measuring machine does not really touch their scalp during the measurement? I think it counts hair as well, just look closely
Editor Rob
as I mentioned, for him to be able to Bust a Gut and push 3mm more from 171.9 to 172.2, there must be a bit of force, I'd have thought it had to be flattening his hair down a bit. I believe he also stood near the 170cm mark against the 'wingspan' wall and it kind of matched up that he would be a bit more than 170...
Lmeister said on 9/Jan/18
Taller than Messi and shorter than Neymar. 171cm seems accurate.
James said on 9/Jan/18
I saw a picture on YouTube where he was measured with an electronic stadiometre and he was 172.2cm. In that picture we couldn't see if he was wearing any shoes
Editor Rob
Click one point he is tying sneakers, so it looks likely he had them off at one point.
Anonymous said on 9/Jan/18
In the medical he was measured 172.2 cm but you could potentially knock off 2-1.6 cm because it wasn't touching the top of his head.
Editor Rob
I think to be fair 5ft 7.5 is reasonable enough for him seeing that medical as he managed to nudge the bar 3mm higher by breathing in, so it must have been close enough to his head to do that...
Anonymous said on 8/Jan/18
Have to disagree on this one rob
DruceLee said on 8/Jan/18
Hmmm medicals he is going to be for sure about 172cm...sorry but he is not only 170... look picture of Messi with Bartomeu and now Coutinho with Bartomeu.

He seems to be an inch shorter than Neymar. Good luck in Barca
Antonio said on 8/Jan/18
Thank you Rob! Watched him at the Barça presentation on TV today and he looked 170 or maybe a hair less
Anonymous said on 8/Jan/18
The medical exam was early in the morning and he measured 172 Bust a Gut. Shouldn’t he be 5’7.5 rob ?
Editor Rob
was it confirmed in socks 172 standing tall sometime in the morning?
That is impressive, I will give him 5ft 7.25.
NiBBBBa said on 8/Jan/18
As listed, might be 171-172 in the morning.
Johnson said on 8/Jan/18
Rob, I have watched measuring Coutinho today

He has marked 171.9 firstly and has breathed in a bit and he has marked 172.2
