[OFF THE POST] What does German soccer fan Julia Probst do for fun during national team games? Probst, who is deaf, reads the lips of German players and coaches and tweets what they have to say. What Germany coach Joachim Loew has been saying has made her feed a must-read for German media and allowed her to build up a Twitter following of 20,000.

Loew said he will watch his language during Friday's Germany-Greece game after learning about the 30-year-old Probst Twitter feed, EinAugenschmaus (A Feast for the Eyes)

"I have said some pretty hefty expletives, I have to admit that," he said. "So I will probably have to beware of that a little bit more in the future."

The 30-year-old Probst has feasted on close-ups of German players and coaches since the 2010 World Cup when she started her feed.

    Well she got an eyeful then when Ibrahimovich scored against England. I was dissapointed in his sportsmanship as he yelled in Hart's face.

    Is Loew a major offender compared to the players? I don't speak German, but as Robert says, any fan who speaks English or Spanish can see that "F- off" and "P- madre" are as indispensable as the ability to grimace and grab a body part after going down. Some of the uglier parts of the game.

    Since when did the traditional England all-purpose adjective necessarily become foul or abusive?
