Is this proper Polish grammar? If it is, can you explain how it is?

Don't belive in everything they write on Wiki ;-)

What about prof. Miodek?? According to him powinien był is czas zaprzeszły

Citation please :-)

All sources I found say that the 'powinien był' uses the coniugation patern similar to that used for the old 'czas zaprzeszły', however its meaning is pure 'czas przeszły'.

e.g.

portalwiedzy.onet.pl/141107,,,,powinien_powinna,haslo.html
poradnia.pwn.pl/lista.php?id=11646
grzegorj.w.interia.pl/gram/skladnia05.html (this one is interesting, it says that 'powinien' is an adjective that is used as a verb, what supports my point above).
