Collingwood helped England win back the Ashes in 2005 before being part of the team who slumped to an embarrassing 5-0 defeat Down Under in the 2006-07 series.
Now Warne insists Ricky Ponting's side will cruise to a similar mauling next summer - a belief that Collingwood does not share.
"It's the normal 'verbals' that seem to go on nowadays," he told Sky Sports. "We know where we need to be as a team. We believe we're certainly pulling in the right direction.
"If we can get everybody fit and raring to go and playing well, when the Ashes come around we're going to be a very, very hard team to beat."
With Kevin Pietersen now captaining the side, after Michael Vaughan stood down from the job, England are in the early stages of a new era.
If Pietersen can maintain his magnificent batting form, and the rest of the team respond to their new leader, England could have a prosperous winter.
With tours of India and West Indies ahead, Collingwood believes England can go into both series with plenty of optimism - particularly after they beat South Africa in the final Test of the summer and then crushed the Proteas in the one-day series.
"When we're on song we can beat anybody," he said, "It's just getting that consistency. "It was a great end to the season; it gave everybody a buzz.
"It was a big lift there and if you've got the likes of Steve Harmison and Andrew Flintoff fit and the way they are, we're going to be a very hard team to beat."
