Ameobi acknowledged United need to improve their home form after a patchy run at St James' Park last term.
However, he sees no reason why the Toon Army should not be optimistic.
The striker told the Evening Chronicle: "We know we can get the big results - especially at home.
"We showed that last season with our result against some of the teams who have been right up there at the top end. It is another for me but a very important one for the football club.
"We achieved what we set out to do last season and we done it with time to spare in the end.
"That was great for us, but the aims for next season will be different again and we will look to kick on.
"Home form will be important for us and that's one thing all of the lads want to improve on."
