Big Shola has seen 28 strikers arrive at Newcastle since his debut, with the latest being Papiss Demba Cisse.
Ameobi said: "Somebody asked me how many strikers we'd signed since I made my debut, and I guessed 28. So I wasn't too far off. It's a lot, nearly as many as managers here!
"Nothing will change for me. You've got to fight for places at every club in every position. It makes me work harder."
