Graham Roberts has taken a dig at some former Tottenham stars for being ‘unhappy’ when the North Londoners pick up all three points.
All the talk ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Newcastle was understandably about the Magpies £305m Saudi-led takeover.
There was a party atmosphere at St James’ Park ahead of kickoff and the roof came off when the home side took the lead through Callum Wilson in the second minute.
However, from that point on, Tottenham took full control of the game and silenced the home crowd.
They grabbed three goals before half-time through Tanguy Ndombele, Harry Kane, who opened his account in the Premier League, and Son Heung-min to effectively put the game beyond Steve Bruce’s men at the interval.
In the end, the 3-2 scoreline flattered Newcastle, with Eric Dier putting the ball into his own net late on to give the home side some hope.
Speaking after the game, some former Spurs players on Sky Sports were fairly critical of the Lilywhites despite winning and going up to fifth in the table.
David Ginola questioned whether Tottenham would be able to attract the best players to the club in the coming seasons while Jamie Redknapp claimed he did not understand why Spurs decided against selling Harry Kane in the summer, insisting that cashing in on the striker would have helped the club to rebuild their squad.
"#THFC are miles away from where they were – don't let today's result twist it."

These comments do not seem to have gone down well with Roberts, who seemed to take a dig at the pair by suggesting they hold grudges against the club for struggles during their playing days.
Here’s what the legendary Spurs defender tweeted in response:
Some of these ex players who often the fans don’t like really seem unhappy when we win 😂it really makes me laugh it may say more about there performances as a player for the club. When Spurs win my whole week is a lot better 👏👏COYS

Jamie Redknapp has clearly had an agenda against Levy and ENIC ever since his father was sacked back in 2012. However, I certainly would not accuse Ginola of holding a grudge as he always talks fondly about his time at Spurs.
