Non of Litmannen or Svensson has reached their best form this season while Källström has been outstanding, both in the french league and in the Swedish national team.
So without too much doubt, Kim Källström gets my vote.

Källström, his vision of the field is absurd. The only one beside the aging Litmanen capable of giving assists like the one against Marseille.

I said Kim Kallstrom, hopefully Sweden keep him on the bench v Italy.

I would easily pick Litmanen if he would have played some games this season. Quality wise he's in his own class.

I pick Tainio ahead of Kallstrom, he's been better in the French League and has more experience.

Tainio has looked really strong when I have seen him play. I didn't vote for him, but mostly because I haven't seen him in enough matches. With Niemi, Hyypia, Tainio and Forssell (and even players like Saarinen, Tihinen, Kopteff and Pasanen), Finland should have their best team ever in the coming years.

It's either Tainio or Litmanen for me but Litmanen is a legend and he's the best out of all these players when he is on form so my vote goes to him.

AC Milan wants to sign Tainio and they have also shown interest in Mika Väyrynen as have local Milan rivals Internazionale. Lets see where he goes next season.
