Can Collingwood Football Club produce a Hat-trick , and win three consecutive ,  AFL premiership flags ?

The winners of the 2010 Premiership , believe they can  , after winning the pre season 2011 NAB Cup .

Collingwood ,are confident they can dominate the AFL  Home and Away Competition, in 2011 , to win ' back to back flags '.

In an ironic twist of fate , Mick Malthouse , Coach at CFC , was crowned " King of Moomba" , by retiring " Queen " Molly Meldrum . Meldrum is a staunch Saints fan , the afl team , annihilated  by the Magpies , in  the historic 2010 Grand Final Replay .

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Its Summer in the Southern Hemisphere , and the Christmas/ New Year festive season is approaching .

One of the headline stories on the  front page , of the Saturday Age newspaper ,screamed  " My Year of Pain ," exclusive interview with Ross Lyon . He is the St Kilda Football Team Coach . The Saints lost to the  Collingwood Magpies in the historic replay of the 2010 Grand Final . Readers were exhorted to read further.

It would appear ,  AFL   football is never out of the  news, no matter what else is going on,  or what time of year it is , in football mad  Melbourne .

The AFL would be delighted with such high level media exposure in the non - playing season . Footy starved fans will be relishing every headline grabbing statement .

In keeping with this spirit , many afl football jumpers , jerseys , guernseys will be wished for this festive season .Young and old fans , alike would love one in their Christmas stocking .

Collingwood Fans , turned out in their  thousands,  to again watch friday training, at Goschs Paddock .

A feeling of deju vu , for both clubs tomorrow,  as they again take to the big stage of the MCG , to try and win the 2010 premiership.

Much has been written in the press , and televised in the media , about last weeks Game . More will be written after tomorrows clash .
