Why does Iwobi always get the nod in our biggest games?

I said it again and again. Why is Iwobi keep on playing ahead of Welbeck, Jack, Walcott, (even Ox when he was still here). I don't dislike Iwobi, but why the need to keep on starting him all the time?

Bcos Wenger is desperate to create a new star, so people will applaud his development skills?

AW proudly said previously that it takes courage for a team to play a young player when everyone is in the results business. So clearly AW admits he put results as secondary. I am pretty sure Wenger personal preference is to play Iwobi even if we buy a star like Bale, De Maria, Pastore or Lucas Moura that plays in the same position. Seeing a kid play makes AW spirit soar like watching his kids takes their first steps. Winning is always secondary to him.

You should play IF and only IF you deserve to play. At the moment AMN deserves his minutes, he's been good although not in his preferred position, but Iwobi, what makes him undroppable? How many goals and assist has he contributed?

Because Wenger is clueless Wouldn't trust him with the local pub team.His recruitment and set up is baffling in all honesty it's symbolic.
