Another season has drawn to a close at Arsenal and our Club photographers have been with the squad every step of the way.
Now the 2011/12 campaign is over, chief photographer Stuart Macfarlane reveals his top 10 photographs of the year. Read on for part one of our feature and keep checking the site throughout the week as we round up our favourite images.
The bench celebrate against Tottenham: Arsenal's substitutes and backroom staff jump for joy after Robin van Persie equalises in the north London derby. Stuart says: "That's a remote control camera we put in front of the bench before a game. You just set it up, focus it and wait for a moment in the game. It fires at exactly the same time as the cameras behind the goal as well. This photo just shows how passionate the bench players are at the moment when Robin scores. You have all the backroom staff celebrating too, it is just a really emotional picture."

Boss takes training: Arsène Wenger ponders his next move during an autumn training session at London Colney. Stuart says: "It shows him thinking about what is coming ahead with all the boys warming up in the background, he just seemed to be in a world of his own thinking about the next game. I just liked the shape of it, him pacing around with his head down and not taking any notice of anything around him."
