6.4
Control: I wouldn't call it control what Lannoy exercises. Rather shaky not helped by his calls, body language and outer manner.
6.0
Calls: Two strong penalty appeals not given, a regular goal disallowed for offside and generally not sophisticated enough for Elite.
5.0
Style: This where the marks will go. The Lannoy style is the real problem which I have seen now in four or five matches. On a good day he is average, on a bad day this is not expected level. The way he gave the second yellow, oh my goodness.
8.0
Fitness: Better than control and calls, but from what I saw not as quick as some refs in comparison.
8.0
Positioning: Not a prob.

General assessment
Only saw the summary, so I won't write a full report. What I watched, confirmed my existing doubts about Lannoy even more. He is not convincing in my opinion - not in his decision making nor in the way he conducts a match.

Control: When you see Lannoy, you have to forget about "control of the match". He is not conducting, just floating...
5.0
Calls: Again, a game which sums up every aspect of the "Lannoy effect". He has never been good at detecting foul play and at interpreting correctly incidents occuring on the pitch. This time we've received a lot of failures in assessment of situations. Some of h

Style: The Lannoy style... irritating, bewildering, certainly unsatisfying.

Positioning: Positioning in itself is not the problem, correct assessment and clear and consistent decisions are the issue. Good positioning... so what?

General assessment
It wass the last we've seen of him. He was born in 1969, which means his international career should expire at the end of 2014. After this lacklustre performance (I'm polite in describing it so mildly), I'm sure he won't get any nomination in further stages of the clubs tournaments. As he was not chosen for the World Cup tournament, it means he will never handle any significant match on the world stage.

Only average on good days...

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2013 - 2014 round of 16:
Barcelona - Manchester City, 2 - 1. Camp Nou, Barcelona, Spain, 2014-03-12

Lannoy appeared on the international level at WC 2010 in South Africa where he had a rather shaky start. In his two matches the control level was low, the teams did what they wanted and the deceision making didn't help either (cf. Brazil versus Ivory coast). Since then, he has been designated for big games (e.g. Euro 2012 Germany versus Portugal) where he couldn't prove that he is really up to the challenge. On a good day, he won't mess it up, on a bad day things can be quite different.

Not really a good Lannoy day
He missed two strong penalty appeals on either side (8'' and 78''). He disallowed a regular goal (18'') where the team called for offside but the real pain for me is to watch his style in action. I'm not convinced by his decision making nor does his outer manner and personalilty seems to contribute to a safe refereeing display. What really horryfied me, was the way he issued the second yellow. You may debate if it is a sensible thing to do - after a controversial call to send a player off with a second yellow if you are not in control. But don't do it like an angry child - this is how Stephane looked. He made him even weaker than he already is. After four years at international level, not Elite enough for me.
