It's been a year of ups and downs at Arsenal and our Club photographers have been with the squad every step of the way.

Now 2012 has drawn to a close they have revealed their 10 most memorable pictures from the past 12 months.

Scroll down this page for the first five images with comments from Stuart Macfarlane and David Price.

1. Fans leave the stadium after Olympiacos match
David says: “I had had the chance to get a picture from this unique vantage point since the start of the season. I waited until we had a night match because I wanted to try to get some idea of the fans' movement across the bridge and also the darkness hides the building work and highlights the stadium and the letters. I’m really pleased with the picture."

2. Players celebrate Koscielny goal v Man City
Stuart says: “This is a really emotional celebration picture of Laurent Koscielny’s goal. I love the player pile up and the expressions on Mikel Arteta and Olivier Giroud’s faces.”

3. Thierry Henry scores winner against Leeds
David says: “I love this picture because it’s a classic Henry finish. The way he bends the ball around the keeper and the net is almost his Arsenal trademark. This picture was captured on my remote camera that I placed in the TV gantry before the match. I chose to focus it on the north goal as we normally shoot that way in the second half and I felt that there would be more chance of Thierry coming on late in the match. I didn’t expect for it to pay off so well. I thought maybe I’d get a shot of him with defenders around him, but to get this goal was a great feeling."

4. View of the Emirates from the Goodyear Airship
Stuart says: “I was lucky enough to be offered a trip in the Goodyear Airship to shoot Emirates Stadium from the air. This is my favourite picture from the day, it’s a unique view of the stadium and a stunning view of London. It really shows that Arsenal is London’s club.”

5. Mikel Arteta competes for the ball v Newcastle
David says: “I like this shot as it sums up the passion and pace of the Premier League. Both Mikel Arteta and Jonas Gutierrez are competing for the ball with little regard for their own well-being. It kind of fulfils the moto that you have to earn the right to play. You have to do the dirty things in order to be able to play the attacking flowing football that we are known for."
