Is my sentence correct?
And I'm going to tell you what I would had expected from you.

In the past, I expected someone to do something. Which he didn't do.
Now I'm about to talk to him about it.

Re: Correct usage of tenses

Is it correct that the sentence above consists of Future I and Simple Past?

Re: Correct usage of tenses

If you mean 'I'm going to tell you what I expected from you', I think it is correct.

Re: Correct usage of tenses

It's also possible (in a different context) to say "I'm going to tell you what I would have expected from you."
