Rob, Do you think he ever was the full 5'9" , as you've said he looked 5'9" back in liverbool days ?
I doubt he really lost any height, I think maybe a strong 5ft 8.5 range and tiny loss isn't impossible through wear & tear, but half inch might be hard to buy!

He was listed as 176cm in 1995/6 premiership album. I guess thats not quite what he is.

Looks 5'8-5'8.25 range to me.
What I will say is logically when it comes to those around the 5'8 range listings (or near that), I am far less likely to question a listing as Rob himself measures within the range lets not forget lives with someone also within that range. Doesn't mean he can't be off with an estimate but a far less chance compared to other height ranges, I feel.

This guy used to regularly be listed as 5'11 back in his Liverpool days...

Robbie gives a slightly shorter impression than the 173.7 measured guy from Height Challenge. Robbie looks around 173 flat.

@Rob: did you actually notice a difference in person? I agree with Andrea that I don’t see one here but maybe it’s the camera angle (he actually “appears” further away and like he’s sinking in the background). 3/8” may be noticeable to most (You especially) but not to someone who isn’t as knowledgeable about height
Well I feel he seemed closer to 174.

I've measured several folk around 5ft 9 and he wasn't quite that tall, within a fraction or so, I think in liverpool playing days I'd have guessed he was closer to 5ft 9, but in person 5ft 8.5 is more believable.

Rising, although I agree that it is hard to spot such a small difference at times (especially when people have certain hairstyles that make it hard to see where the top of their head is), I think you can still spot it, if you pay enough attention to photos. Look at this guy from the HC: Click Here
He was measured at 173.75 (173.95 under the old stadio that gave a couple of extra mms) at the moment of the photo, so basically just around 1/4 inch taller than Rob. Despite that, it's quite clear that he's the taller one there, to me, even if, in that case, the fact that he has a higher eye level might make it clearer...

Yeah, he doesn't look much different than Rob here, although he certainly has more hair...

@ Sandy Cowell - Too true! They appear to me as if they are very close to being height twins, when I next cast my votes on the two Rob's I will probably give them equal billing! Maybe they should both have 5'8.375"!

Difficult to see the height difference! I suppose 0.5 to 1 cm won't be visible in a lot of pics.
Sandy Cowell said on 15/Jul/18
@ Nik - The two Robs look neck-and-neck to me, or as near as it is possible to! In fact, my next vote for Rob will go up to reflect that. I think the last time I voted for our editor, I only gave him 5ft8 and an eighth! Just as well he won't be reading this... 😬

Rob slouch more than Robbie imo;Rob even with his short hairs look the same height than him.My guess is around 5"7.25'
Nik said on 14/Jul/18
@ Sandy Cowell - Yes, the average vote now reflects the fact that 6 voters think both Rob's are the same height! - Well not all of 'em!
Sandy Cowell said on 13/Jul/18
But Nik - I thought his name is Robbie Paul! 😉
Rob Fowler can have 5ft8.25!

Looks the same height as you Rob.
said on 12/Jul/18
In the picture he is the same height as Rob.
Back in Liverpool days I'd have guessed he could seem near 5ft 9, but in person, I feel more 174 is possible. Certainly didn't seem that as tall when I saw him with Owen than it seemed like there would be from back in their Liverpool days.
Nik said on 12/Jul/18
I think that you may both share the same name and height!

True 90s legend, he was a goal machine, always remember him scoring 4 or 5 and being top of the goal scorers table competing with Andy Cole and Alan Shearer!
