TRANMERE ROVERS attempted to get into the heads of their eco-friendly rivals Forest Green by playing MEAT-related songs before their League Two clash.
The Merseysiders welcomed Rob Edwards’ side to Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon for a pivotal top-of-the-table clash.
And according to fans in attendance at the match, the stadium MC played several meat-related songs before kick-off.
One tweeted: “Tranmere Rovers playing only meat-related songs before their game against Forest Green Rovers brilliant.”
The mind games didn’t work as the visitors rant out 4-0 winners to stretch their lead at the summit of the League Two table.
And Rovers were quickly trolled for their pre-match meat antics.
One fan tweeted: “I think that those meat songs at Tranmere was a miSTEAK as Rovers gave them the CHOP today.
“They were like LAMBS to the slaughter and the fans adding BEEF to the missiles just added to their BACON.

“Great win to make me happy.”
Another said: “They had 10,000 in at Prenton Park, they hilariously played Meat Loaf songs to wind up visiting vegans of Forest Green pre-match, but Tranmere lost four-nil in the end.
“Ah well – 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.”
And another said: “Getting a bit worried four Tranmere fans, they left Prenton Park real early and don’t seem have to posted their usual hilarious meat gifs anywhere.”
It’s not certain if Tranmere’s playing of Meat Loaf songs was a direct attempt to troll Forest Green or a tribute to the late musician, who passed away earlier this month.
Rovers’ meat-themed match music came as a surprise given they recently teamed up with vegan charity Viva in a bid to promote the benefits of a plant-based diet.
Tranmere will look to bounce back from their heavy defeat on Tuesday night when they welcome Stevenage to Prenton Park.
Forest Green, who are now TEN points clear at the top of League Two, will face Port Vale in their next outing.
