I need your help to keep a rock legend off No.1

ROBBIE'S TWEETS OF THE WEEK

Apart from the obvious, I had a great time in Cardiff on Saturday. But which one of these blonde lovelies is Miss Wales?

As you know, I’m passionate about my country and this lot looked quite hot to a Welshman, too.

Then I got involved in a hilarious Twitter battle with undefeated light-heavyweight and Olympic bronze medallist Tony Jeffries, who helpfully sent me this pic of how I’ll look aged 45.

It's not every day that a footballer finds himself nominated for an award with a rock legend - but it’s happened to me.

Believe it or not, I’m on the shortlist in the DAB Rising Star category at the Sony Awards, which are the Oscars of radio broadcasting - and one of my rivals for the gong is Ronnie Wood.

Unless I’m mistaken, it must be the first time a Rolling Stone has ever been up against a big-nose from Wrexham for an award.

It’s the only award which is decided by public vote, so please help me out and go here - you never know, I might have to dust down that tuxedo when the winner is announced on May 9.

I’m never likely to turn up on your doorstep wearing a rosette and canvassing for support like a politician, so just this once, please, vote Sav.

You know it makes sense.

I can’t blame Craig Bellamy for being honest enough to admit that his body is telling him it might be time to quit international football.

Wales won’t reach Euro 2012 and with Gary Speed rebuilding, the chances of qualifying for Brazil 2014 are slim.

Bellers is 32 this summer and, with his injury history, it sounds like he’s leaning towards a decision which could buy him another year of top-flight club football.

But that must not be the end of him with Wales.

John Toshack edged veterans like me out of the team, then did not keep us around the squad in coaching or advisory roles. It was one of many mistakes he made as boss.

If Craig is willing, I’d love to see him join Speedo’s staff.

He is a passionate influence in any dressing room, who commands respect because of his willingness to tell the truth - even if the truth is not what you want to hear.

And no player I know knows more about football.
