2cm more than Cristiano imo

6'1.75 for sure.
S.J.H said on 7/Jun/17
Rob, don't you think sometimes Thierry Henry could still pull off 6'2 with most of his team-mates? I think he have loose posture..
Editor Rob: yes I have seen photos of Henry and he can look 6ft 2, but overall I am not as convinced he is quite a big solid 6ft 2er.

@Jakob/Rob

In his last season in Sao Paulo FC Kaka was classified as 187. (6'1.5" to 6'1.75") Probably his real height imo.

Rob, how tall does the guy on the right look.

Editor Rob: Romelulu has claimed himself as being 6ft 4...he may not be quite that tall.
Canson said on 26/Feb/17
Agree with rampage
Jakob said on 15/Feb/17
Kaka I feel is a good example of a 186 guy. I would vote 6ft 1.25in. A strong 6ft 1 but not quite 6ft 2, I think henry might edge him out under a stadometer
Johnson said on 15/Feb/17
If Pires is 185 as claimed then Henry 186.5?
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/Dec/16
6ft1 flat is too low and the full 6ft2 is a tad too high
Height said on 20/Dec/16
Rob, do you think he is more in the 187.5 cm - 188 cm range perhaps?
Editor Rob: there are times I could see him anywhere in 6ft 1.25-2 range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Dec/16
Rob, I think he's at least a strong 6ft1 guy and could probably pass for 6ft2. He edged out Ronaldo...could we get him on here?
GS said on 20/Nov/16
He's over 6 foot 2
Nik said on 12/Nov/16
Yes I would say that Thierry Henry is 6'1.5. He was a truly great footballer. I Will never forget his winner against Man U in the 2000/2001 season or the wonder goal he scored against Tottenham in 2002. There are so many great memories from this legendary player.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Nov/16
Rob, any guesses for Kaka?
Editor Rob: Rampage, in the 2000's on the pitch I always used to think he looked a 6ft 2 framed fella, but...he might not be quite that high.

@Gung Ho
Click Here. How he just 184 he have almost same height with186 cm kaka and in that pic ,if you look good enought ronaldo a bit taller than terry even he has wider leg than normal.
Rory said on 5/Nov/16
Terry is 6'1.5 for sure. Look at him with 6'0.5 Neil Robertson who Robs met, he's a good inch taller than him.
Gung Ho said on 5/Nov/16
OK here some pics with Henry and Federer Click Here

Kaka and Federer Click Here

Henry does appear taller next to Federer than Kaka, plus Henry has footwear disadvantage.

So I standby my appraisal 187cm for Henry, 185cm for Kaka judging from this pic Click Here

That puts Ronaldo around 184cm in my eyes.

@dpp If anything Terry edges out Ronaldo.

Worst angle shots in the world but have to do, they're standing close enough in line, check the level at the top of the head
even though Terry has his head tilted down

Click Here

Click Here

185cm for John Terry seems fair, that puts Ronaldo 184cm at best.
Gung Ho said on 5/Nov/16
@James I'm don't consider myself a new user, more like a returning user.

Those pics of Henry with Kaka ain't the best, can't see how they're standing in both of them, second pic is at a poor angle, Kaka ia also closer to the camera and will appear larger. First pic again not the best angle, Henry's head is tilted down and he is standing out of line behind Kaka, due to perspective being further away from the camara will make Henry appear smaller than he really is. So difficult to judge height from, especially if there is only 1-2cm between them and would appear identical like you said.

You may consider Zidane is 184cm but I assume he is not over 6ft, 182cm is my bet.

Here is Kaka next to Federer

Click Here

Click Here

Here is federer next to 188cm listed Andy Murray who claimed 187.5cm himself

Click Here Not the best angle but one of the few pics I can get a full body shot from, you can easily gauge the height difference

Some head on pics

Click Here

Click Here

Click Here

Now here is a poor angle pic with Federer being further away from the camera, you see how due to perspective Federer appears much smaller than he really is

Click Here

Kaka only appears around 185cm-186cm compared to how a 187.5cm-188cm Murray stands next to Federer. Of course this calls into question Federers height, he is listed 185cm but appears over an inch shorter than Murray, so I'm guessing around 184cm and looks it next to 185cm-186cm Kaka.
Johnson said on 4/Nov/16
Henry is clearly 3 cm more than 185 cm listed Zidane
Height said on 3/Nov/16
The thing about the pic with the retro stars is that Kaka is an arm away and in front of Zidane. That should not be used for comparison since it gives Kaka an advantage because of his position in relation to Zidane.

It is more likely that Henry is 187.5 or so rather than Zidane 184.5, since he always edged Barthez (really a 180 cm guy) by a clear 5cm.
dpp said on 3/Nov/16
if he 6'1.5 ,so terry is 185 cm for sure cause he is a bit shorter than 186 cm ronaldo and shorter than drogba who have the same height with henry.
Jakob said on 2/Nov/16
Rob, how tall do you think Pete Cech is? On the pitch he has very loose posture so can look 6ft 3 range, but off if it he does look his listed 6ft 5 to me.
Editor Rob: Petr always seemed a big guy, around 6ft 5 I think isn't unbelievable.
James said on 31/Oct/16
@Gung Ho Are you a new user? You make interesting contributions. Very good pic. Yeah I agree there Henry looks bigger than Kaká.

But in these other pics they are identical

IMO Kaka seems to be 187 cm next to 184 cm Zidane:

Rob, how tall do you think John Terry is and will you add him at some point in the near future?
Gung Ho said on 22/Oct/16
@James

Click Here

This should throw you evaluation of Cristiano right off, Kaka edges him out by a centimetre or two. And Henry makes Kaka look 185cm here.
James said on 18/Oct/16
@joe joe I do believe you. For sure, John Terry is over 185 cm. He is similar to Cristiano, and Cristiano never looks under 186 cm.
joe joe said on 13/Oct/16
@james in that pick of Henry and John Terry we can't see their posture or foot spread so we cannot debate if Henry is taller than John terry from that pick and even in the pick. The difference is minimal. I have met John Terry and can confirm he is a solid 1m87. I am 185 and he was slightly taller than me that's for sure. He was in dress shoes that night.
Arch Stanton said on 13/Oct/16
Yeah 6'1.5 overall is probably best and fair enough.
S.J.H said on 13/Oct/16
He always had that 1/2" or 1cm on 186cm tony parker. 6'2 is impossible. 6'1.5 is pretty accurate
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Oct/16
I think it's safe to say he isn't quite 188cm.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Oct/16
He can look a weak 6'2 at other times though so 6'1.5 overall I think is OK.
Arch Stanton said on 10/Oct/16
Editor Rob said on 13/Sep/16
Hadn't seen this shot, but it is with Jay Ajayi:
Click Here
That guy is down as 5ft 11.75.

There's a good chance of 186 isn't there?
Editor Rob: there is a chance, but then, look at him with a guy like Ian Wright...he can look 187 with him!
S.J.H said on 21/Sep/16
Neil it. 6'1.25 Tony parker look 0.25 lower than henry
James said on 18/Sep/16
Click Here

Actually I was wrong. Comparing 189 cm Busquets with Heny, Henry really looks 186/187 cm.

So Pogba is 191 cm and John Terry 185/186 cm similar to Cristiano Ronaldo:
Click Here
James said on 18/Sep/16
@SewellAnthony No, Henry is clearly taller than 187 cm John Terry:
Click Here

Is it me or Henry only looks 187 cm next to Pogba? Maybe Pogba is 192 cm?
SewellAnthony said on 16/Sep/16
Rob you should see Henry with Drogba and John Terry, who are both a strong 6"2 and 6"1.5 rispectively ... They tower Over him ... No more than flat 6'1 in my opinion
Big T said on 14/Sep/16
I'm the biggest Henry fan ever (Big T is actually short for Thierry) but I never really thought he was more than 6'1"
James said on 13/Sep/16
@Johnson Ronaldinho is shorter than 179 cm Pato
Click Here
MD said on 13/Sep/16
Again, just look at the shots of him with a measured 6'1" Chad Ochocinco Johnson.

Rory said on 13/Sep/16
I think his height is difficult to guess. He looks 186 range mostly, but then he is a sloucher. Standing at his fullest I'd say 6'1.5, possibly 6'1.75. When he presented the Ballon dor to Ronaldo, he definitely edged him out despite having worse posture.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 12/Sep/16
Rob, how likely is the full 6ft2 for Henry?
Editor Rob: I think it's more likely he is a bit under it.
Johnson said on 12/Sep/16
@James angles make the difference
joe joe said on 11/Sep/16
yeah Rob I think from everything I have seen Henry is 186-186.5 guy
Judd said on 11/Sep/16
Johnson it depends: if you wake up at 8-8,30 am then at 9 you'll be taller than what you are at 10,30 of course but if you wake up at 7 am then your height at 9am will be very close to your 10,30am one...
I notice that in my case if my daily shrinkage are 2 good centimetres then I will lose the first in the first hour since I woke up...
This means that after 2 hours since I woke up I am not much far from my afternoon height.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 10/Sep/16
I think Zidane is a weak 185cm guy.
travis said on 10/Sep/16
so he 6'2 with shoes 6'1 1/2 without them rob that is correct
James said on 10/Sep/16
@Johnson Casillas 180 cm and Bale 184 cm

It is compatible with Puyol being 175 cm and Ronaldinho 178 cm

@Johnson How can you explain Ronaldinho being shorther than 179 Alexandre Pato and weak 5' 11" Beckham?
Johnson said on 9/Sep/16
@Judd all measurements are made in the morning for footballers, the only problem it is not the same 9:00 than 10:30...
James said on 9/Sep/16
That's why Zidane case remind me of Harrison Ford. I think he has always been a good example of a 6' 0.5" man. But others see him in the 6' 0.75" range like Harrison Ford.

In fact Zidane looks a few mm shorter than Bale if we want to be very precise:
Click Here

IMO 184 cm.
Judd said on 9/Sep/16
IMO Zidane is for sure a bit taller than a flat 6' but maybe a tad under a strong 6'1"...
I think 184,5-185 cms is a good range; I do not doubt he was measured at 185 cms but it's also possible (like for Rakitic) his measurements was made in the morning...I'd say 6'0.75" for him!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/16
I think Henry clocks in at a solid 187cm and can look 188cm range.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Sep/16
I think 184/185cm zone for Zidane. Might just edge Bale whose 183/184cm bare minimum
James said on 8/Sep/16
I always though Henry was a solid 188, now I'm thinking he probably spends most of the day at 186
Johnson said on 8/Sep/16
@James I see in the pics Ronaldinho taller tan Puyol (178). Ronaldinho can be 180.5 cm
James said on 8/Sep/16
@Tony Stork Ronaldinho is 178 cm.

Click Here
He is taller than 177 cm Clarence Seedorf but shorter than 179 cm Alexandre Pato.

Plus he is 2 cm shorter than Beckham.

Yes, it was from the same event, but it was a better picture. With a measured 6'1" Chad Ochocino:

James said on 7/Sep/16
Great addition Rob! Thanks for adding Henry. I am sure there will be a lot of interesting debates about his height.

But what about the legendary Zinedine Zidane?
Click Here

I think he is 184 cm compared with Gareth Bale. It would be also a great addition!!
Editor Rob: zidane looked over 6ft, but a big 6ft 1 I am not sure he really was.
Andrea said on 7/Sep/16
Actually, next to Big Rob, he looks barely 6'1...
joe joe said on 7/Sep/16
what do you think about the below pic with Pogba rob? Henry is in good posture with pogba bending down ever so slightly but it still looks like Henry is giving away a couple of inches. what do you say? they are in similar footware aswell

Click Here
Editor Rob:
With a photo like that, you have a solid 5cm difference in the photo putting Henry no more than say 186...then you have possibly 1cm poorer posture from Pogba (I doubt it is anymore than that) so henry is now at 185...but, I think Pogba has slight camera advantage, so put Henry back up to nearly 186...are their sneakers the same?

I'd say Pogba has a fraction more, possibly 1/3rd inch so you have a 186-186.5 range Henry.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
6ft2 is still arguable
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Sep/16
Rob, shouldn't Zidane have a page by this point?


I think 6ft0½-1 zone. Was listed 185cm mainly during his career and I think he's potentially near that. Definitely not under 184cm.
joe joe said on 6/Sep/16
I would put Henry in the 6'1 / 6'1.5 catagory. The pics I posted below of him with Rashfor and Pogba show that. He clearly give away an inch or more v Pogba and Pogba isnt in full posture like Thierry is. What do you think of those pics Rob?
Arch Stanton said on 6/Sep/16
@Steven, if Henry is "at least 6'2" Dan Walker is 6 ft 6 as he claims. Murray a measured 187.5 looks taller with Walker than Henry did.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Sep/16
That Ibrahimovic photo is a good one, about 3 inch diff. Wenger is about an inch taller than Henry so I think 6'2.5 for him now and 6'3 peak.
Hight34 said on 6/Sep/16
186cm possible for Henry
MD said on 6/Sep/16

Thierry's footwear:

Even assuming Chad is wearing higher shoes, I'd definitely say the current listing is the highest he probably is.
Editor Rob: the first link didn't seem to show, but I assumed it was either This one or the one he's beside the 6ft 6 and change guy Here.
MDV said on 5/Sep/16
Rob in the famous pic of Henry and Pogba don't you think that there is more than 4 cm between them? from that pic looks at least 6 cm and they have same shoes and good posture...
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/16
Wenger still looks a strong 6ft2 at least today so 6ft3 peak
Jakob said on 5/Sep/16
Rob, I know you're a football fan, here's s classic player for you: Robert Pires. He is listed 1.87m but I'm not sure of that, I was thinking more 1.84 - 1.85, although it's a while since ive seen him play.
Editor Rob: 184 might be possible for him
Steven said on 5/Sep/16
Thierry Henry is 6'2" minimum.
spainmen191cm said on 5/Sep/16
Rob, if Henry is 6ft1.5 then how tall is Zidane?
Click Here
Editor Rob: in that one shot he looks 184 range
TD said on 5/Sep/16
Looks spot on to me. Maybe 6.1.75 at tallest you could argue. I wouldn't go any higher than that.
Jakob said on 5/Sep/16
I think he's one of those almost 6ft 2 guys. Re: Arsene Wenger, he's well known as a fanatic of stretching and fitness, and is surely the fittest coach his age in the premier league. I doubt he has lost much height. I think 190 peak and 189 now is probable, being late 60s. He always looked an inch taller than Henry and a bit more than 6ft 1 van Persie.
Judd said on 5/Sep/16
Nice listing! Anything under 6'1.5" for Thierry also if even 6'1.75" is arguable! I think he's the same size of mine: precisely 187 cms at the end normal working day.

Rob no page for Zinedine "Zizou" Zidane?
Arch Stanton said on 5/Sep/16
6'1.75 for Henry is arguable but then Wenger's about an inch taller and at leats an inch shorter than Giroud. So if Giroud is nearer 6'3 than 6'4 as some people say Henry can only be 6'1 range..
Arch Stanton said on 5/Sep/16
Seems a good shout yeah, definitely not 6'3!! Can look 6'2 at times but seeing him with Dan Walker, Dan looked almost 4 inches taller so no way on Henry being 6'2. I've had a good look at Wenger I think give him a 191 6'3 peak and 6'2.25-5 now, Wenger looks generally about an inch taller than Henry.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 5/Sep/16
187/188cm was my guess. This is the lowest I'd argue for him
Borats Chicken said on 5/Sep/16
Rob, Since Henry is 6'1.5 would that make arsene wenger 6'2?
Editor Rob: Wenger may have shrunk a bit, he could have been near 6ft 3 peak and 6ft 2 range now.
joe joe said on 4/Sep/16

Tunman said on 4/Sep/16
To be fair he looked about 4cm taller than Zidane,6'2 seemed honest though 6'1.75 is very possible.Now 6'1.5 makes Zidane barely 6'....not sure he looks that short 184 is more likely.
Time to add the guy Rob, he's one of the greatest players ever.Buffon and Casillas also deserve a listing,maybe soon?
Tony Stork said on 4/Sep/16
@Editor Rob,

How about a page for Ronaldinho?

I remember u said he looked more 178-180 range in another page but next to Henry...

He actually doesn't look under a solid 5'11 range.
189 Night said on 4/Sep/16
Perfect listing rob, can look 188 at times but a majority of the time with others he looks 187
HonestSlovene said on 4/Sep/16
Thanks for adding him Rob (big Arsenal fan here), yeah he looks about 6'1.5-6'2 range I reckon comparing him next to former Arsenal team.
TJE said on 4/Sep/16
I was watching him play for the Red Bulls a few years ago; not the ideal place to gauge height.
