I don't remember exactly who talked about this issue first, in another thread, but it was something like this.
A pretty big problem now is that you're now practically forced to buy it in order boost your sustain in lane. Once you have the wriggles, the enemy team can force go for dragon, as Irelia will not be as useful in a teamfight with a wriggles, compared to if she had something like a phage instead.
In addition, many top laners can survive and trade better than Irelia at the moment, assuming they don't have a constant minion hitting OCD, which will greatly affect your farm, causing you to obtain a wriggles (Or any item, really) rather slowly, anyway.
Forgive me if I'm wrong about any of this.
