Lots of things, about the 2010 Finals Series, seem familiar .
Collingwood, walk the walk and talk the talk,Â but are they capable, of winning the Premiership ?
Geelong ,Â the reigning Premiers are quietly confident , as they present for another Finals series , and are a good chance for the Flag.
Western Bulldogs , the battlers from the West , are playing an exciting brandÂ of football , with the luck of Julia Gillard on their side .
The Saints , sentimental favourites of many, are poised to re-write history, and win only their second premiership, in their illustrious history .
Some questions abound .
