The former Tottenham Hotspur man has been defending the north London side.
Responding to some Carragher comments relating to Spurs, Roberts was keen to defend his former club and feels there has been exceptional talent on show at White Hart Lane all season.
That said, he was quick to single out Dele Alli, who has since made it into the senior England squad.
The teenager could play for the Three Lions on Monday night and has generally impressed at Tottenham. Hence the following Roberts tweets linking his performances to Gazza's Newcastle days:
@Carra23 Infact for me the most exciting talent I have seen at Spurs in years.— Graham Roberts (@GrahamRoberts4) October 12, 2015
Carragher responded, quickly clarifying that he didn't take a 'dig' at Tottenham as he also mentioned Danny Ings at Liverpool.
@GrahamRoberts4 Graham it's not a dig at Spurs as I mentioned Danny Ings for the same reason in the same newspaper article.— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) October 12, 2015
Comparing Alli to Gascoigne at Newcastle, though, is certainly some compliment. Spurs supporters will hope the 19-year-old's potential will go more fulfilled than Gazza, although he is still considered one of Tottenham's all-time greats despite his troubles. The same applies to the Magpies faithful.
It will be interesting to monitor Alli's progress for the rest of the season, although Roberts may be committing the cardinal sin of over-hyping the youngster with his latest tweets.
