Newcastle striker Ameobi: Great way to kickoff 2012

Newcastle United striker Shola Ameobi says victory over Manchester United was the perfect way to begin the New Year.

United were turned over by Newcastle 3-0 last night.

"It's the start of the new year, start as we mean to go on," said Ameobi.

"We didn't really show up against Liverpool so that was a great opportunity for us.

"We got a fantastic win.

"We saw what Blackburn did to them a few days ago and we thought that could be something we could work on - get the ball in behind them and squeeze them up the pitch."
