Shola Ameobi was one of several Newcastle stars to attend the Magpies Christmas Party last weekend.
And the 32-year-old spoke to nufcTV about the festive period, including Saturday's trip to Crystal Palace.
He'll come up against Tony Pulis, who he played under during a loan spell at Stoke, so he knows just what to expect from the Eagles boss.
Ameobi also gave his thoughts on the draw with Southampton and his own form.
