The Canaries arrive at the Lane on Sunday still looking for their first win having drawn against Palace, played well but lost at Manchester United, forced a creditable draw at Newcastle and lost against Arsenal last time out.
Midfielder Michael came up against Nigel Worthington's men in some key First Division clashes in his time at Sheffield United, scoring in a 3-2 win at Carrow Road.
He says not to look at the individuals - apart from, of course, a new arrival by the name of Gary Doherty - but the team.
"I've had a few good games against them over the years," said Browny. "They were pushing for promotion along with Sheffield United for a couple of seasons.
"They've started off okay in the Premiership and they'll never lay down, that's for sure.
"They'll try to play football in the right way and they have some good players. We'll have to keep an eye on Doc but they are a good team and that's the key to their success. It's all about a team."
Michael Brown believes the team ethic at Norwich City was the key to their promotion and now a promising start in the Premiership.
