"Někdo by nám tuto větu měl vysvětlit."

Translation:Someone should explain this sentence to us.

How would you say "Someone should have explained this sentence to us"? "Někdo by nám býval tuto větu měl vysvětlit"? If that's right, do you always need "býval" in order to say "should have"?

I'd say "Někdo nám měl tuto větu vysvětlit." It's more of a "Someone was supposed to explain this sentence to us." but it's the closest natural translation I can come up with.
